>> btw: "glass" - "HIvje'" does it mean only the container "glass" or
>> also the material "glass"?
>Only the container for drinking; whatever the material. Glass, metal, plastic,
HIvje' n. glass; A container from which drinks are consumed is a HIvje'. This word is used for any sort of drinking
vessel: glass, cup, mug, stein, goblet, tumbler, and so on. If necessary, HIvje' can also be used to refer to
drinking vessels normally not associated with Klingon culture - for example, crystal stemware. Since certain drinks
are typically associated with certain containers, saying the type of drink plus HIvje' indicates the type of cup or
glass as well:
'Iw HIq HIvje' bloodwine glass,
qa'vIn HIvje' coffee mug,
baqghol HIvje' bahgol cup.
Unless specified further, HIq HIvje' liquor glass usually means a tankard or stein for beer or ale;
HIvje' bom n. drinking song;
reH HIvje'lIjDaq 'Iwghargh Datu'jaj!
May you always find a bloodworm in your glass!
