ghunmeH Hol 'oHbe' tlhIngan Hol'e' jay'. Hol 'IHmoH nItlh mu'meyvetlh. They

Not true. We have a lot of new meanings to existing words. You just
haven't been around long enough to watch words develop in meaning. How
about Do' Qe', the three meanings of jIH, magh, bol, chel, ruQ. In fact,
almost every time Okrand creates a phrase, he give us a subtly different
meaning of some word.
