The specific meaning as used in the book was devised by DeCandido.  The
word  {jeghpu'wI'} itself was the closest simple grammatical rendition of
the intended meaning that a small group of people could come up with

to name them {charghwI'}.]

This, at least, was emphatically *not* an official Okrandian coinage.
