AFAIK never used in a sentence.

The element {morgh} also shows up in {morgh} "protest" (v) and {rejmorgh} "worrywart" (n).

Related nouns:

may'  		battle 
may' bom  		battle song 
may' ghe'naQ  	battle opera
may' qoch  	battle partner
may' ta  		record of battle 
may' taj  		battle knife 
may'Duj  		battle cruiser 
may'luch  		battle gear, panoply, complete set of armor & weapons

N.B. {may'ron} "accordion, concertina" is apparently unrelated to {may'} "battle", though curiously {ron} also shows up in {che'ron} "battlefield" and - less curiously - in {DIron} "bagpipes".  (There's also a verb {ron} "roll, bank [e.g. aircraft].)
