Such discoveries prove to me that the glosses in TKD and KGT are not wholly
explained the first time through.  I still have a feeling we will find out
that more verbs include, at least partially, concepts beyond the simple gloss.

{SIv} does not say "wonder if" or "wonder whether."  We will probably find out
that many other verbs have additional, peripheral words that go well with them
in English but are not necessary in Klingon.
