For completeness: The phrase from TKD p. 171 is repeated in TKW, p. 127.

> jaghmeylI' DaghIjjaj, qetjaj jaghmeylI'
> May you scare your enemies, may your enemies run. TKW

In addition, there a shortened version of this:
{ghIj qet jaghmeyjaj.} (TKW, p. 65)

I'm not sure it's an intended pun, but I used to memorize this word
while thinking of a "cat-walk", even though you don't run there.
