AFAIK never used in canon.  

Presumably this refers to physical motion, but without any examples we can't be certain.  Use {chu'} "engage, activate (a device)" for "raising" shields.  I use {Qorgh} "take care of, care for" for "raise children, livestock, etc."  

Related verbs:

Sal 		ascend (v)
toS 		climb (v)

ghIr 		descend (v)
chagh 		drop (v)
pum 		fall (v)
ghuS  		lower (spear) to horizontal to attack (v)
