Oh, yes, now I see what you mean. I didn't notice that both {pa'} and {Hurgh} have two meanings when I 
wrote it.
I know some people who had problems with this word. They wanted to translate "dark thing" into 
klingon, and came up (in the wrong word order) with {Hurgh Doch}. This means "the thing is dark", or 
even worse: "the thing of the cucumber"!

just a general advice ;-)
