This is an interesting information, but still, from OUR point of view as
Klingonists sticking to Okrandian information, {ghIntaq} only refers to
the spear as described in KGT:

The ghIntaq, for example, is a battle spear, though it is also used
ceremonially. (KGT p. 64)

"A Burning House" was published ten years after KGT.
