Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, September 02, 2019

Klingon word: qurme'
Part of speech: noun
Definition: ingredient
Source: qep'a' 26 [2019]

(qep’a’ 2019):  [{mIw} "recipe, formula"] is generally used for this, but step-by-step instructions can also be referred to as {HIl'aD}. The word for ingredient is {qurme'}, so if a "formula" is the list of the ingredients of something (like a secret formula for the special sauce on a Big Mac), that's {qurme'mey}. 

N.B. "recipe, formula" is an extended meaning of {mIw} "procedure, process".

HIl'aD  		step-by-step instructions (n) (qep’a’ 2019)

(qep’a’ 2019):  {HIl'aD} is singular; several sets of instructions is {HIl'aDmey}.
