<div dir="ltr">Thanks for the correction! I was mistaken on the meanings of {yoD}. I should&#39;ve looked in KGT first since it&#39;s got that argot section with all the details on weaponry.<div>Also, I like it better when Klingon doesn&#39;t follow the same paradigm as English.</div>

&gt; A noun like &quot;yoD&quot; (shield) stands for a concrete object in hand-to-hand<br>
&gt; combat, and after that a defensive system on a ship, just as in English.<br>
mujbej qechvam. KGT p.67 yIlaD:<br>
&lt;As protection against these various weapons, a warrior often carried<br>
a shield, or {yoD}, basically a large plate of metal. The verb form of<br>
&quot;shield&quot; is also {yoD}, and to &quot;shield oneself&quot; is {yoD&#39;egh}.<br>
(Although the Federation Standard word &quot;shields&quot; refers to both the<br>
old hand-held protective armor and the force field protecting a vessel<br>
-- the newer meaning clearly based on the older -- in Klingon, there<br>
is no connection between the two. The force field on a ship is called<br>
{botjan}. To shield a ship, one must &quot;activate the shields,&quot; or<br>
{botjan chu&#39;}.)&gt;<br>
