When I was looking to translate  pencil for Eurotalk thought about the fact
that a pencil is often used when you might want to rub out so thought a
Klingon would see a pencil in the same way as they see a ghojmeH taj. Marc
agreed.

Another similar canon example use of -meH that I can think of is, DevmeH paQ
- "Guide (book)"

tlhIngan  tIgh; SuvwI'  DevmeH paQ
The Klingon way - a warrior's guide
[tkw p.iii]
