&gt; Klingon Word of the Day for Thursday, September 12, 2013<br>
&gt; Klingon word: taqnar<br>
&gt; Part of speech: noun<br>
&gt; Definition: taknar gizzards<br>
&gt; Source: IKS Gorkon trilogy: Book One: A Good Day to Die<br>
</div>Even if we accept it (it was neither written by nor &quot;approved by&quot; Marc<br>
Okrand), I&#39;m pretty sure the word refers to the animal itself, not to<br>
the body parts (or the dish prepared from them).<br>

Since I don&#39;t have a copy of the book I had no way to look up the context or to verify it. I&#39;ll update it to &quot;Taknar (Animal)&quot;.</div>
