In asking this question I was assuming that "ghot" was indeed exclusive. I
often find my self wanting to express an idea that does not have any word
that corrisponds exactly to what I wish to express. Usualy I simply make a
word with that exact meaning for one of my own languages. I was wondering
because when I asked I was thinking about something and when I wanted to put
it down I realized I knew of no word that fit what I wanted to say in
Klingon. Unfortunatly I now am unsure of exactly what that idea was, however
it seem relativly important at the time.
