Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, October 25, 2021

Klingon word: 	nevroD
Part of speech: 	noun
Definition: 	tentacle
Source: 	qep'a' 28 [2021]

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(Lieven, 11/01/2015):  Marc told me [at qepHom 2015] the following, said with my own words:  First, a {ghotI'} is a true fish, the animal that children would draw if they hear the word “fish”. A {bIQDep} covers most animals that live in the sea. Marc gave as possible examples "dolphins, whales, fish, octopus" but he said it's not used for shrimps or even smaller animals like water bugs. When asked for a seal, he said that a seal or a sealion does not really live IN the water, so that's probably not a {bIQDep}.  Every {ghotI'} is a {bIQDep}, but not every {bIQDep} is a {ghotI'}.
