Here's the relevant quote:

  "be indirect, be roundabout, be devious" is {pIQHa'}. So {pIQ}
  would be "be direct".  [MO to Agnieszka (1/02/12)]

TKD 59:  As in any language, Klingon sentences range from the very simple and straightforward to the very complex and convoluted.

Similar words:

Qatlh 	be difficult, be complex (v)
nap 		be simple (v)
ngeD 		be easy (v)

Trek trivia:

Jadzia is persuading Kor to convince Kang and Koloth to take her with them to a trip of vengeance. Kor says he can't convince Kang if he has made his mind. Jadzia says he can. Kor self-pityingly says his best days are behind him. Jadzia comforts him and says that in her memories he is a great warrior, and leaves. Kor, touched, mutters: "You devious little *hadeebah*." (DS9 "Blood Oath")
