For the most part, I think they're from the veS Qo'noS list, which is a
list of words published in a magazine called veS Qo'noS, from Okrand, so
I'd guess they're canon, coming as they do from Okrand.  They appeared in a
HolQeD a while back, and I here reprint them.  Note that some of them made
it into the addendum in the mu'ghom chu'.

I should be (but am not yet) compiling a list of those words, to the best
of my hearing discrimination.  "HuH" does seem to be "gall", but I'm pretty
sure it isn't "nga'" as a root, I misheard.  It really sounds like "nagh",
possibly "ngagh".
