The presence of a particular sense of a word in an English dictionary 
doesn't prove that that sense is included in the Klingon word's meaning. 
However, if we lack any restriction on the matching senses of a Klingon 
word, there's no reason to use any sense that seems warranted. All we 
know is *teblaw'* /jurisdiction (n),/ so you may as well use it with any 
sense you feel is appropriate.
