See here for a canon example of {wuq} "decide upon":

{juH­qo’­Daq vaS­’a’ tu’­lu’. ngoch lu­cher­meH ’ej wo’ San lu­wuq­meH pa’
ghom tlhI­ngan yej­quv Dev­wI’­pu’. DaH che’ ghaw­ran. yej­quv Dev­wI’ moj
ghaw­ran ’e’ wuq­ta’ cho’ ’oD­wI’ Da­pu’­bogh jan­luq pI­qarD HoD.}
"On the Homeworld, there is a great hall where the leaders of the Klingon
High Council meet to determine policy and decide upon the fate of the
Empire. Gowron currently presides, named leader of the High Council by
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who was acting as Arbiter of Succession."
