(HQ 12.4:8):  When air (or gas) from the stomach works its way up and comes out of the mouth (often noisily), one is said to {ruq} "belch}.  Maltz said it is acceptable to refer to this gas as {SIp}, a general word for gas of any kind, but that gas produced within the body is known as {Qep'It}.

(MO to Lieven, 8/03/2015):  The noun is {Qep'It} and the verb is {ruq}. Both of these words can be used for gas that comes up from your gut and out of your mouth and also for gas that goes down from your gut and out the other way."
