Klingon Word of the Day for Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Klingon word: 	boS
Part of speech: 	verb
Definition: 	collect

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

boSwI'  		collector (n)
  - boSwI'vaD veyvam le' chenmoHlu'   
    Collector's Edition  (MKE)

pol 		keep, save, store, collect (v)
  - polmeH jav QujwI' lIwmey 
    6 collectible tokens (MKE)

yIr 		gather (v)
  - nuHmeyDaj may'luchDaj nIv je yIr qeylIS 
    Kahless gathered his weapons and his finest suit of armor. (PB)

(ghunchu'wI', 8/21/2011):  This was used in a command for a warrior to gather his armor and weapons before a battle. Before seeing this word, I might have used {boS} "collect" to refer to packing for a trip. Now, {yIr} seems a better choice.

lIq 		round up (v)
Suq 		acquire, obtain, get (v)
tlhap 		take (v)

    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.
