Klingon word: raS'IS
Part of speech: noun
Definition: seed
Source: qep'a' 23 [2016]

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(KGT 96):  If plants or animal parts are dried and, if necessary, chopped up before being steeped in boiling water to produce {Dargh} [tea], this preparation is called {Qenvob}.  Often, however, there is no {Qenvob}; the tea is made by simply picking thorns, leaves, petals, or seeds off of a plant and immediately immersing them in the water.  Usually brackish water ({bIQ na'}) is best.

(qep’a’ 2019):  [{San'emDer}] refers to an individual plant, typically with stems, leaves, etc. It is not used for fungi or algae.
