I have found what may well be the most obscure pun yet discovered in the vocabulary of tlhIngan Hol - <SuS> ("wind, breeze; blow into a wind instrument").

The Kashmiri word for "lungs" is <shoosh>.

I'm sure many will argue that it's just a coincidence, that both words have an obvious onomatopoeic origin. But we do all know how clever Marc Okrand is.
