Never used in a Klingon sentence, but Okrand did comment on the word on 
st.klingon ("Re: Expensive Word," 7/97):

   {wagh} is "be expensive"... If you're not a Klingon but plan on
   tasting gagh, by the way, I suggest you find a good restaurant
   and stick to {qagh wagh} "expensive gagh".

Cf. also {lo'laH} "be valuable".  For {qutlh} "be cheap", cf. also 
{lo'laHbe'} "be worthless".
