Klingon Word of the Day for Saturday, April 17, 2021

Klingon word: 	'Iptay
Part of speech:  noun
Definition: 	honorific epetai
Source: 	qepHom 2014

From Klingonaase *epetai* "line head", the equivalent IIRC of *{tuq DevwI'}  (fandom < John Ford's novel _The Final Reflection_)

Ford's Klingonaase honorific titles - still used in fandom - are (in ascending order - correct me if I'm wrong):
tay  		tai 
Sutay  		sutai 
veStay 		vestai
Santay 		zantai
’Iptay 		epetai

Voragh, Ca'Non Master of the Klingons
    Please contribute relevant vocabulary from the last year or two. I’ve fallen 
    behind in updating my files and adding cross-references for related words.
