For some reason, the Type 6 verb suffixes seem to be among the easiest to
/ghItlh/ is a strange verb, and I'm not referring to the fact that it
doesn't mean everything that English "write" means. It has three different
listings by Okrand:
engrave, encise, mark (v)
HolQeD Vol. 2, No. 4
mark (upon) (v)
Apparently, you can /ghItlh/ a manuscript or a plaque, etc. Can you
/ghItlh/ words? The third definition suggests that the thing you /ghItlh/
is the thing which is written, etc. upon, rather than the actual words or
marks you make. I've always been curious whether Okrand meant this as a
clarification, an expansion, or a replacement for the original listing of
/ghItlh/ in TKD.
