Do you have KGT (Klingon for the Galactic Traveler)?

tu' - discover, observe, notice, find
Sam - Seek and find, locate
When a definition has more than one word/phrase, you need to take into account
all the words/phrases. /tu'/ doesn't have a direct english translation. /tu'/
doesn't mean just "find". It doesn't mean just "observe". It has a meaning
all of it's own that is sort of a mixture of all the words/phrases.
/tu'/ could kind of work, but it has "observe, notice" in there. It works good
enough that if we had this conversation outside of this classroom, I wouldn't
think about it and wouldn't mention it. That's why I didn't say it's wrong, I
just listed what I might have used.

When using -chuq, the prefix can not imply an object.
Is /chaq rItlh moQ yotlh.../ "perhaps we will conquer eachother on the pball
field" or "perhaps we will conquer the pball (together)"?
