Used in canon:
  jIyajHa'.  chay' jura'? 
  [untranslated] ST3

Cp. {jatlhHa'} "say the wrong thing, misspeak" - also coined for ST3, though not actually heard in the movie.  (The director preferred the English version instead "Say the wrong thing, Torg!")  Okrand apparently used the Klingon line in TKD:

  bIjatlhHa'chugh qaHoH
  qaHoH bIjatlhHa'chugh 
  If you say the wrong thing, I will kill you. TKD
