Never used in canon.

Related nouns:

{tIgh} "custom"; {tayqeq} civilization; and the slang term {tlham} "order, 
structure (societal)"

Don't confuse {nugh} with {yej'an} "society (e.g. scholarly society)":

   Note that {nugh} "society" has a much broader meaning: a group of
   people with a shared culture. Accordingly, {tlhIngan nugh} would
   mean "Klingon society" as distinguished from, say, Romulan society,
   but {tlhIngan yej'an} would probably be "The Klingon Society", a
   group dedicated to the study of Klingons. (HQ 4.4)
