Re: [Tlhingan-hol] Klingon Word of the Day: SaQ

Anthony Appleyard ( [KLI Member]

The English word "cry" can be ambiguous. Does {SaQ} mean "boohoo" or "shout out loud"?

I have had this ambiguity nuisance with language textbooks saying that a word means "lie" without disambiguating "tell a lie" from "lie down", when learning Ancient Greek and when learning Russian, and in both cases I could not find which was which until I found a use in text where only one of the two possible English meanings made sense.
