New Klingon Words (not in the original lexicon)

The words listed here were revealed or expanded upon after the publication of The Klingon Dictionary and Klingon for the Galactic Traveler. This list was compiled and maintained for many years by Will Martin (a.k.a. charghwI'). It is now curated by Alan Anderson (a.k.a. ghunchu’wI’). Note that not all of these words are perfectly defined, and the list is subject to additions, deletions, and emendations as our knowledge increases. The choice of what words deserve to be included in this list is up to Alan. Send him suggestions for additional entries, realizing that only words from confirmed Okrand sources will be accepted, and the source must be cited. See the explanation at the bottom of this list for source abbreviation descriptions.

In order not to compete with Dr. Okrand’s income via royalties, the vocabulary of TKD and KGT will not be reproduced here. For a complete word list, combine this list with the ones in those two books.

mughato'
n
mugato [Introduced TOS episode #47: A Private Little War. One of the more notable native animal forms on Neural {Zeta Boötis III} is the mugato, a large, white, ape-like creature with dorsal spines and a cranial horn. The mugato are monogamous, mating for life. Little or no provocation will spark an attack by this hostile creature, whose bite is highly poisonous and fatal if untreated. The only antidote for the mugato bite is the proper application of the native mako root, which has the ability to draw the toxin out of the human nervous system. {No mention is made of how to draw it out of a Klingon nervous system. Of the planet, the text says:} The native inhabitants of the planet are humanoid, possibly the descendants of a Centaurian exploration mission that disappeared in the area some two hundred years ago. The population was once one of tranquil, peace-loving hunters, but a serious breach of the Prime Directive has resulted in their development of war and comparatively advanced projectile weapons. Direct Klingon interference, countered by Federation involvement, has divided the inhabitants into five major factions, each of which is feuding with the other four.

The two words have been used in juxtaposition for so long, they have come to be accepted as a single, though grammatically peculiar, word."]

even, in addition [The precise meaning and part of speech are uncertain. There is only one known appearance of the word, at the beginning of a sentence on the bottom of the Monopoly box: Qo'noS romuluS je boSuqlaH. vabDot tera' Qejbogh DIvI' ram boSuqlaH. Kronos, Romulus and even the puny Federation's precious Earth, are all up for grabs. It could be an adverbial meaning something like "additionally", or it could be a noun similar to latlh or ngIq that has a genitive effect on a following noun.]

lIl
v
simulate, impersonate [The idea is one of doing something such that the subject of the verb looks or behaves like something (or someone) else or represents something (or someone) else. The word has no connotation of fraud or anything underhanded (in this respect, it’s like ghet). The object is the thing being simulated or the person being impersonated. lIlwI’ (simulator, for lack of a better term) is different from lIw (substitute) since lIw implies replacement (the notion of instead of) while a lIlwI’ doesn’t replace anyone or anything.]
