HQ 12.4 p9:  For Klingons, even though there is a word for cry ({SaQ}), there is no word for tear or tears, undoubtedly because Klingons have no tear ducts. [mentioned in ST6] The only thing Maltz could think of that eyes do from time to time is redden ({DoqchoH}, literally "become red" or "change to red").

TREK TRIVIA:
Unlike humans, Klingons do not cry at weddings. (Worf, TNG "Data's Day")
