Klingon WOTD: chuH (v)

This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Tuesday, November 12, 2002.

Klingon word:   chuH
Part of Speech: verb
Definition:     throw (spear) at

Additional Notes:
KGT p. 64.  The thrower first lowers the spear to a horizontal position ({ghuS}), then hurls it with great force ({chuH}).

The verb {chuH}, which is more accurately translated as "spear"--that is, "hurl a spear at," can be used only if the projectile being thrown is a speare or somehow resembles a spear.  The object of the verb is the intended target: {jagh chuH SuvwI'}.
