Klingon Word of the Day for Saturday, September 14, 2019

Klingon word: SuqSIv
Part of speech: noun
Definition: core (of an apple, planet, sun, but not a group)
Source: qepHom 2015 p.12

MO: The Klingon word for core (of an apple, for example) is {SuqSIv}.
LL: Is this restricted to fruit, or can this also be used for the
    core of a planet, or the sun?
MO: Yes, it could be the core of anything, the inside of something
    (but of course not the core of a group, which we know is {qolqoS}).
    It doesn't have to be a fruit, and it doesn't have be something
    that you throw away.  [qepHom 2015 p.12]
