Supposedly, the simple definition and the sound file are provided by
Marc Okrand himself.  Unfortunately, the well-meaning but uninformed
folks in charge of the site tend to elaborate on the definition more
than they should.  Don't take things like their "to ingest a liquid
substance" as authoritative -- especially since they tend to use an
English infinitive form in verbs' definitions, which isn't quite the
right way to render an unprefixed Klingon verb.
