Word: loQHa'

Category:

Description/Reason:

Since loQ is an adverbial for "slightly, a little bit," does loQHa' work for something like "largely, mostly, considerably, a lot?"

Wish list Editor: While loQHa' may not mean the suggested meaning, if you want to know the canonical meaning for this word consider upvoting it so it can be passed onto Dr. Okrand.

  1. I use {loQHa'} to mean "considerably, substantially, somewhat".

    To say "largely, mostly", I would probably say something like {HochHom ghu'mey'e'} "in most situations".

    1. Your point about the correct use of is very well taken. As I understand it though, doesn't appear in canon and Dr. Okrand hasn't commented on its meaning directly. I'd love to hear the canonical gloss, whatever that ends up being.
