N.B. {chorgh} is also name of the eighth tone of the Klingon nonatonic musical scale:

KGT 73:  The independent words for the numbers three through nine were not originally a part of the Klingon counting system, but they had to come from somewhere. The musical scale is the likely source. The word for the fourth musical tone, {loS}, began to be used for the number four, and so on through the eighth tone, {chorgh}.
