Well, the qep'a' 2022 words (or at least 45 of them) have been revealed so far, and already I can see some puns:

qeQvav (thingamajig): *qeQ* is feces, commonly called "doo" with two o's, as in "doggie doo", and *vav* means dad. Thus: doodad.

qIS (be libidinous/horny/randy): English "kiss", of course.

re'chIv (internal organ): "Viscera" backwards.

rong (roast, grill, broil): To a Klingon, this would be preparing food the "wrong" way!

tIlqemchaw' (thingamajig): "Wjatchamacallit" backwards.

yI'De' (cervid-like animal): Rearranging the phonemes, you get *DI'ye'* (deer). Or, alternatively, SIR-vid (a play on "sir")? Because *yI'* means "to speak in an honorable fashion". But then, what does data have to do with -vid?

Can you find any others?
