tlhegh vImeS 
I make a knot in the rope. (Lieven, 11/12/2014)

Lieven (11/12/2014):  After giving us the word for knitting, Maltz just revealed another useful and related word: it's {meS} and means knot, both as noun and verb. The object of the verb is the thing you use to make a knot, e.g. {tlhegh vImeS} - "I make a knot in the rope". To loosen the knot, simply say {meSHa'}. Maltz also said that now that everyone knows the word {meS}, he can add that {meS} is a frequently used slang term for encrypt. Similarly, {meSHa'} means decrypt.

Untying a knot is a "mess"? (quljIb); or "mesh"?  (Gaerfindel)

bagh 			tie (v)
rar 			connect, attach (v)
nIq 			weave, knit (v)

meS  			knot (n)
naw' 			access (v)
ngoq 			code (n)
