Correct.  I believe it's listed as two words in both the English-Klingon 
and Klingon-English parts of the TKD Addendum glossary (which I don't have 
with me at the moment).  If it's a typo, the copy editors at Pocket Books 
made it twice.

I have it defined in my notes as {chem} "field (of energy)".  Other types 
of "fields" that novices sometimes confuse are {che'ron} "battlefield" and 
{yotlh} "field (of land)".
