<br>
Wondering about how to describe the word &quot;wire&quot; into Klingon, I found myself thinking *baS tlhegh* /metal line/.<br>
<br>
The word tlhegh naturally led to *tlhegh'a'* for /cable, hawser,/ *baS tlhegh'a'* for /metal cable, hawser/ and *tlheghHom* for /thread, strand./<br>
<br>
But then I ran up against /web./<br>
<br>
Perhaps *tlheghHom jonwI'* could be what I'm looking for?<br>
<br>
Further: has anyone translated &quot;silver?&quot; I want to use the phrase &quot;silver cord.&quot;<br>
<br>
