The *word* itself was written by Okrand, but note that the *definition* was
written down by Lawrence Schoen.

As noted by Voragh above:
> ('ISqu' 8/11/2007):  The word Okrand wrote in my notebook during last
year's qep'a' [i.e. 2006] was spelled {'elI'jaH}.  The English translation,
written by Lawrence below the Klingon word, was "unexpected visitor".
