AFAIK never used in a sentence.

KGT 86:  The verb {mum} ("taste") means sense flavors. To say {Soj vImum} ("I taste the food") is to say "I perceive a flavor or flavors", not "I try out the food to see if it is prepared properly". This latter meaning of taste is expressed by the verb {waH}, which can also be used more generally to mean {try out, test, use experimentally".

wej wa' = 31 (i.e. 31 flavors) 

lev 		palate (n)
jat 		tongue (n)
