   Other regions have names that are distinct from the names of any districts
   or cities within  them, such as the large {Sa'Qej Sep} ("Sakrej region"),
   several thousand kilometers east of the First City. The origins of most
   Klingon place names are not known, having been lost to history. Sometimes,
   however, the meaning of a place name is clear, such as the Sakrej region's
   {HuD beQ yoS} ("Flat Mountain district")... (KGT p.17)

This region is the source of many odd pronunciations and grammar, some of 
which have been more widely adopted as slang. Cf. KGT pp.24-26 for details.
