Klingon word: 	DoQ
Part of speech: 	verb
Definition: 	claim (territory)
Source: 	TKD

chay' 'etlh DoQ nuch 
How does a coward claim a sword? (PB)

'etlh DoQDI' meQchu'pu' che'rupbogh 
his promised kingdom will be ash by the time he claims the sword (PB)

molor HoSghaj woQ / luDoQ / 'el chaH 'e' lupoQ 
In the name / Of Molor the Mighty, / Demanding to get in. (PB)

wIvraj tIDoQ. 
Place your bets. (DSC "Will You Take My Hand?")

  The Tellun Star System is in a border area claimed by the Klingon Empire in 2268. (TOS "Elaan of Troyius")

Perhaps "claim [some thing]" would be a better definition as it's also used for things other than territory.  In fact, do we have any examples WRT claiming territory?

maq 		proclaim (v)
ja' 		tell, report, claim (v)
yer 		territory (n)

    Please contribute relevant vocabulary from recent qep’a’mey 
    or qepHommey. I’ve fallen woefully behind in updating my files.
