RE: EK: ghomqa'ghach

Exclusively Klingon.  A warning for beginners that this is probably too much
for them.  EK is not anything official, just something that some of us are
trying to work into habit.

DIp 'oHbe' nuq?  Qovpatlh?  TKD p178

Why have -'egh?
It's not a stative verb that needs -'eghmoH.
Even then, you don't have -moH.
This usage makes /tlhe'/ transitive.

I don't know any canon for /tlhe'/.
Similar words are /DIng/"spin", and /jIr/"twirl, rotate".
AFAIK /DIng hasn't been used either.
/jIr/ has been used:
betleH jIrmoH - "twirl a bat'leth"
Intransitive.  Of course this can't be used as evidence for /tlhe'/; but I
think /matlhe'/ is ok.
