Part of speech: 	noun
Definition: 	braid, knotwork

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(Lieven, 11/12/2014):  After giving us the word for knitting, Maltz just revealed another useful and related word: it's {meS} and means knot, both as noun and verb. The object of the verb is the thing you use to make a knot, e.g. {tlhegh vImeS} - "I make a knot in the rope".  To loosen the knot, simply say {meSHa'}. 

meS 		knot (n)
tlhegh  		line,  rope (n)
SIrgh 		string, thread, filament (n)
qoSta' 		ribbon, tape (n)

meS 		knot (v)
bagh 		tie (v)
nIq 		weave, knit (v)
rar 		connect, attach (v)
