  nom yer mechmeH Quj 
  ["game for fast trading of property" (untranslated)] MKE

  chaw'vam yIpol 'ej SIbI'Ha' yIlo' pagh 'oH yImech 
  This card may be kept until needed or traded. MKE

KGT 1:  both commerce and intellectual exchange are slowly returning to the levels that had been attained prior to the hostilities.

In 2267 Klingon agent Krell told village headman Appela that killing has pleasures: it's easier than trading and it has rewards - like the hunt. (TOS "A Private Little War")

"You've tried to hem us in, cut off vital supplies, strangle our trade! You've been asking for war!" (Kor, TOS "Errand of Mercy")

Similar words:

tam 			exchange (v)
tlhong 		barter, bargain (v)
je' 			buy, purchase (v)
ngev 			sell (v)
DIl 			pay for (v)

malja'  		business (n)
  malja' Huq 	  "transact business"
Suy 			merchant (n)
