Part of speech: noun

(qurgh, 8/18/2016):  {tlhom} and {chum} were new words created because one of the new Friends of Maltz specifically asked for a way to talk about the visual experience of sunrise and sunset. Those phrases were then added to the dictionary as the specific way Klingons talk about those experiences.

chum  		be colorful (v)
tlhom chum 	sunset (i.e. colorful sky) (n)
jajlo’ chum	sunrise (n)

jul  		sun (n)
jajlo'  		dawn (n)
choS 		twilight, evening (n)
Hurgh 		be dark (v)
