: How would you spell "Flash" and how would it be pronounced? 

There's no known word for "flash" but we do have {wov} "be light, be bright":

  SuD 'ej wov 
  (it) is SuD and light (a way to refer to a yellowish tinge) KGT

  SuD Dargh 'ej wov 
  The tea is SuD and light. KGT

  SuDbogh Dargh 'ej wovbogh 
  The tea that is SuD and light. KGT

  wov; ghI'boj Sech rur 
  bright as the Torch of G'boj KGT

{wew} "glow":

  No attestations in canon

and {boch} "shine, be shiny":

  boch ghIjraj 
  Your nose is shiny. TKD 
  reH boch qutluch lo'lu'bogh 
  The used kut'luch is always shiny. TKW 

  boch; ghIch rur 
  shiny as a nose KGT

Depending on what you mean, you could say {wovqu'}, which appears in the

  nI'be' yInmaj 'ach wovqu'
  Our lives burn short and bright. 

According to my notes, someone on the mailing list used *{bochqu'} for
"sparkle, twinkle".

Give us the sentence you're tryng to translate and we can help you better:
