Klingon word: 	SIgh
Part of speech: 	verb
Definition: 	influence

reH DuSIgh vavlI' 
Your father is a part of you always. TKW

PUN: S.I.G. (Special Interest Group)?

moH 		exert undue influence on (somebody/something) (v) (slang)

(KGT 154):  The verb {moH} (literally, be ugly) normally does not take an object. In its slang meaning, however, it is used only if there is an object, as if it were (somebody) "uglies" (somebody). For example, it is found in such expressions as {DamoH} (You exert undue influence on him/her; literally, "You ugly him/her"). The word {bImoH}, with the prefix {bI-} (you [no object]), can mean only "You are ugly" ... In standard Klingon, the verb meaning influence is {Sigh}.
