I noticed in the description on boQwI', *mIQ* is marked as a noun rather
than a verb, and links to the regional word for forehead rather than the
word for deep-fry, which caused me some confusion for a bit, lol

> Klingon word:   tlhombuS
> Part of speech:         noun
> Definition:     type of food, *Klombus*
> _______________________________________________
> (KGT 93):  If heat is used as part of food preparation, the cook is most
> likely to {mIQ} (deep-fry) the food. This involves first acquiring {tlhagh}
> (animal fat) from any available source and then heating it up so that it
> boils (the general word for boil is pub, but the verb used specifically to
> refer to the boiling of fat is {'Im} [render]). After it has been boiling
> for a while, the food to be fried is tossed in (sometimes having been
> coated in some kind of paste), and it stays there until it has soaked up as
> much of the {tlhagh} (fat) as possible. A particularly popular dish,
> {tlhombuS}, requires that the cook coat a block of {tlhagh} with a mixture
> of {ngat} (herbed granulated cartilage) and {tIr} (grain) and then briefly
> immerse the block into the already boiling fat, just until the coating
> hardens.
