AFAIK never used in a Klingon sentence.

KGT 76:  To finger the {may'ron} - that is, to push the buttons - is to {Heng}

KGT 113:  The verb {bI'} ("sweep") refers to the action of pushing something out of the way by using an implement or the forearm as if it were a broom.

KGT 115:  During the course of a bout, both parties ... alternately lunge ({jop}), that is, push the bat'leth toward the opponent, and deflect ({way'}), or use the bat'leth to push the oncoming one away.


vo' 		propel (v)
ghoS 		thrust (v)
luH 		yank (v)

Cf. also {yuvtlhe'} "lid, cover, cap" (n.) 
PUN: based on the instructions on child-proof medicine bottles: Push ({yuv}) while turning ({tlhe'}).
