N.B. This is the conjunction joining nouns {joq} "or, and/or" backwards.

Only used twice AFAIK: 

  bISoptaH qoj bItlhutlhtaH 
  You are eating and/or you are drinking. TKD

  Qu' buSHa'chugh SuvwI', batlhHa' vangchugh, qoj
   matlhHa'chugh, pagh ghaH SuvwI''e' 
  If a warrior ignores duty, acts dishonorably, or
   is disloyal, he is nothing. TKW

Any more in the paq'batlh?  (On an unrelated note:  Are there any examples of the {law'/pus} formula there as well?)

Related words:

'ej		and (conj. joining sentences)
pagh 		or, or else, either/or (conj. joining sentences)
