(HQ 11.2:9)  When the nose of an airplane or similar craft moves to the left or the right, the plane is said to {Der} "yaw". When it moves to the side (not when the nose points to the left or right, but when the plane slides to the left or right without otherwise changing its orientation), it is said to {Dav} "sway". [...] The attitude of an aircraft is often talked about in terms of angles. The word for angle is {tajvaj}. Klingon {taH} means "be at a negative angle".
