KGT 59:  To slide the blade of one's bat'leth along the blade of the opponent's weapon is {DIj}.

KGT 80f.:  What the Federation would classify as a painting--that is, a {nagh beQ} featuring an image not carved into it but painted onto it--is made by applying {rItlh} [pigment, paint, dye] ... This may be done either by using fingers ({nItlhDu'}) or an implement called a {rItlh naQ} (pigment stick), a stick with flattened ends. ... The word {DIj} means "use a {rItlh naQ}, paint with a {rItlh naQ}". The same word is used in the context of battling with swords to refer to the sliding of one's blade along that of the opponent.

yan 		wield, use or manipulate a sword (v)
nech 		be lateral, move laterally [use for "slide"?]) (v)

ghol  	opponent, adversary (n)
'etlh  	sword, blade (n)
