mu'ghom vIgherbogh, citing MSN (whatever that is), claims that <magh> can also mean "to indicate, reveal". lI'qu' mu'ghomvam 'ach vIvoqHa'.

Don't tell me there's another suffix missing from my chart! chay' <-ba'> mojaq lo'lu'? nuq 'oH SeghDaj'e'?

I've heard of fermented mare's milk (kumiss). Could 'Iw HIq actually be made from fermented blood? Is this even possible?

There seem to be two schools of thought on this. One (apparently originating with Ford) holds that the Homeworld shows *relatively* little variation in climate, season and terrain. This would fit with the early political and cultural unity that we seem to find on Qo'noS. In fact, I can't see how else Kahless could have created a /yuQ wo'/, especially if the planet, as many seem to think, is rather larger than Earth. The other school seems to feel that a dramatic and violent history needs an equally dramatic and violent planet for its theater. In this case we can expect a much greater ethnic, cultural, religious, and linguistic variety, with whole civilizations and continents perhaps remaining aloof from the warrior ideals established by Kahless.
