He/she demands to see a face. [challenge to a duel] KGT

loHwI' vISuch 'e' vIpoQ 
I demand to see the magistrate! (ENT "Affliction")

KGT 68:  To challenge someone to a duel, one will give the command {qablIj HI'ang} ("Show me your face!"), though this is often shortened to simply {HI'ang} ("Show me!"). When one does this, he or she is said to "demand" or "require" ({poQ}), a short way to say {qab legh 'e' poQ} ("He/she demands to see a face").

qoy' 		plead, beg (v)
tlhob 	ask, request, plead (v)
qap 		insist (v)
neH		want (v)
