Where did the /Huh?/ and /What?/ glosses of *toH* come from? Where did
these glosses for *va* come from, and why are they bracketed?
So far as I know, *toH* is /well!, so!/ expressing approximately the
same as English /Aha!,/ while *va* is just a shortened form of
*Qu'vatlh, *which is said in moments of extreme anger, but which we
don't have a translation for.
