Okrand to architect Lieven Litaer (10/24/2011):

  [Maltz] did say, though, that there is a verb {ren} that means
  design or map out or plan ... {ren} is not the same as {'ogh}
  "invent", which implies creating something that hasn't been
  created before. And it's not the same as {nab} "plan" which is
  used for planning an event (or a battle strategy or whatever),
  just as the noun {nab} "plan" cannot be used to refer to blue-
  prints [cf. {pu'jIn}].

jInmol 	project (n)
meq 		reason (n)
jInmol 	project (n)
nab		plan, procedure (n)
ngoQ 		goal, purpose (n)

For "mean, signify" use {'oS} "represent".
