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.
