>Part of Speech: verb
>Definition:     be vicious

Used in canon:

   naS; norgh rur
   vicious as a *norg* KGT

FYI: The {norgh} is a sharklike sea creature (KGT), a dangerous Klingon 
predator (cf. SAREK).

The {Qa'} is a "type of vicious animal" (TKD?).  The word {Qa'Hom} can be 
applied to someone (or some animal) that may act like it's a vicious {Qa'} 
but is, in fact, just a little, harmless creature, fluffing itself up to 
make itself look bigger (KCD).

Related verbs include {qej} "be grouchy, be mean"; {qu'} "be fierce" and 
{ral} "be violent".
