/-qoq/ is a Type 3 noun suffix that means "so-called." The usual example is
/rojqoq/ "so-called peace." You think the peace doesn't really exist. It's
a noun qualifier.
I used /pIqaDqoq/ because while the system on the KLI's site calls itself
/pIqaD/, it's not REALLY the /pIqaD/ spoken of by Okrand.
