AFAIK never used in a sentence.

Kahlest was young Worf's {ghojmoq} on Khitomer. (TNG "Sins of the Father")

Are {ghojmoqpu'} always female?  

*gin'tak* (an advisor so trusted he has been made part of the family) or *{ghIntoq} could be the male equivalent.  He wears a special ring, bearing the crest of the House he has pledged his life to defend.  {ghIntaq} is literally a "battle spear", which could be a metaphor (e.g. my "right hand" in English). 

Worf said "K'mtar is {gin'tak} to the House of Mogh". [TNG "Firstborn"]  

Though never stated, the elderly Tumek may have been *gin'tak* to the House of Kozak.  He continued to work for his widow, Grilka. (DS9 "House of Quark")
