KGT 163:  That is, while it is acceptable to say {He Qob} ("dangerous route"), using {Qob} ("be dangerous") adjectivally, it is ungrammatical to say *{He Qom} for "perilous route". 

KGT 149-50:  There is no known verb {Degh}, but if there were such a word, presumably it would mean "steer", and {DeghwI'}, then, would be literally "one who steers" ... There is a related noun {Degh} ("helm"), but since {-wI'} follows only verbs, there must have been a verb {Degh} at one time that has fallen out of use, at least in the sense of steer ... in the usual sense of guiding a vessel along a set course or defined path.

Okrand told SuStel (?) at a qep'a' that {He} can not be used in a metaphorical or spiritual connotation of "way" or "path," such as The Klingon Way or the Way of the Warrior. For that try {paQDI'norgh} "teachings".  Cp. also {tlhIngan ghobmey paq} _The Klingon Book of Virtues_ (i.e. original title of _The Klingon Way_ acc. to MARC-CIP) or _Tao Te Ching, a Klingon Translation_ = {pIn'a' qan paQDI'norgh} (tr. by Agnieszka Solska, 2008).
