AFAIK {ghet} has never been used in a sentence.

(HQ 12.3:8):  {Qaq} "behave falsely honorably, behave in a falsely honorable manner" ... is used in cases where one misrepresents oneself in order to be accorded honor one is not entitled to, and in that way it is different from {toj} "deceive" and {ghet} "pretend", neither of which has this kind of connection to honor ... {ghet} and {ghetwI'} "pretender" generally do not imply deception, but simply role-playing.

Da 		behave as, act in the manner of (v)
