  "At a qep'a' a few years ago, we asked Marc Okrand about this, and he said that {chab} would work for this. The word means any baked bread or crust sort of food. So, doughnuts are {chab}, turnovers are {chab}, and pizza is {chab}. Mince pie would be {chab}. Bagels are chab. [...] {chab} doesn't equal bread." (SuStel)

  "While thinking about food, he added that the word for bread is {tIr ngogh}." (MO's email to Lieven L. Litaer of 11/15/2010)
