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.
