Klingon WOTD: Qev (verb)

speersd (speersd@georgetown.edu)



This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Saturday, December 15, 2007.

Category: Food

Klingon word:   Qev
Part of Speech: verb 
Definition:     stew 
Source: KGT (225 KE, 259 EK) 
Swedish: stuva


Additional Notes:
KGT p. 93.  Some dishes are prepared by heating meat in a liquid consisting of the animal's blood along with some choice condiments.  To prepare food in this way is to {Qev} it.  Livers of [bokrats] are typically prepared in this manner.  Though the dish is heated, in order to properly make {boqrat chej Qevlu'pu'bogh} ("stewed [bokrat] liver"; literally, "[bokrat] liver that has been stewed"), the livers should be from an animal that was killed only minutes before.  The difference in flavor between fresh and nearly stale livers is most noticeable.
