But remember that klingon is another culture.  Does this work in their 
culture.  We have the statement "go mate with your targh", but we don't know 
what ngagh'egh would imply in their culture.

Maybe that statement has more to do with the fact that it's a targh rather than 
the action of ngagh.

If I say "That girl is hot", my friends know that I am refering to the lustfull 
feelings she generates around her.
Would a klingon understand what I mean?  Or would he only think I was refering 
to her actual temperature?

They're not stupid questions.
