Never used in canon.

Useful nouns are {jIb} "hair (on head)", {loch} "mustache" and {rol} "beard".

Related verbs include {DuQ} "stab", {pe'} "cut" and {SIj} "slit".

Note {poD} "be clipped" and {poDmoH} "clip" - which we've only seen used 
with reference to language (e.g. {Hol poD} "clipped language" and {tlhIngan 
Hol poD} "Clipped Klingon".

Maltz:  Can {poD(moH)} and {chIp} be used with other nouns?  E.g. to prune 
plants or strip wires?
