Re: KLBC: HolqoqwIj

The word ngIb means "wrist," while yeb means "ankle."  In Krotmag, the
meanings change due to pronunciation differences, hence the slang terms
meaning "putrid" and "sin" (or an association with such qualities, hence the
derogatory nature of a statement "You are a wrist/ankle.")
