If you check out the New Words List at 
you'll see that I listed naHjej citing it on page 88 of KGT.

At this point, I'd consider either one to be correct. Both 
exist in canon. {neHjej} can be easily found in the word 
list, so using it is fine. Meanwhile, {naHjej} is clearly 
the way he originally intended the word to be used, so, it 
would be hard to call it wrong. In English, we have one 
word spelled "blond" and another spelled "blonde". Which 
one is right? Also, check out "independent" and 
"independant". Which one is right? Then there's "grey" and 

Deal with it.
