KGT has a slang term:
paw' (collide) but lists no simple non-slang term.
CK mentions butting heads, but I havent quite worked out exactly what was
being said from the tape, the best I could come up with was the following
dialogue segment (TT - terran tourist, KG - Klingon Guide):
TT What's happening over there? pa'Daq qaStaHnuq.
KG Klingon warriors are butting heads. qIp'egh nachDu'chaj
Was I close?
Where is the canon master when you need him. ;)
