Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, February 10, 2020

Klingon word: lIch
Part of speech: verb
Definition: pour (into/onto anything)

AFAIK never used in canon.

qang 		pour (from one container into another) (v)

(KGT 98f.):  A container from which drinks are consumed is a {HIvje'}. This word is used for any sort of drinking vessel: glass, cup, mug, stein, goblet, tumbler, and so on.  […]  A {bal} is any bottle or jug used to store liquid.  Usually one will pour ({qang}) the drink directly from the {bal} into the {HIvje'}, but it is not considered uncivil to drink directly from the bal... Some drinks are served in special containers, such as the {runpI'} ("teapot") used in the making of {Dargh} ("tea"), and are then poured into the appropriate {HIvje'}.

(KGT 99):  If the particular dish is somewhat soupy ... it will arrive at the table in a large bowl ({maHpIn}) and a diner will pour its contents into a smaller bowl ({Duq}), from which he or she will consume it.

teb 		fill (v)
nIj 		leak (v)
Qoy' 		spill (v)
SoD 		flood (v)
vIH 		move, be in motion (v)
