Qov had actually used <'IvtIH> in her story at some point. The sentence
was <'IvtIHDu'Daj 'uch Mahoun>, so I inferred it was a body part.
ghunchu'wI' appeared to know it, so I wrote it down as a new word. This
was before the qepHom.

At the qepHom, I happened to talk to 'ISqu' about this word, and she showed
me a list of five words she'd typed out from a previous qep'a', under the
title : the above four plus which I already had in my own
dictionary. All five words were parts of the body. She also had
definitions. However, I didn't want to post the definitions I copied from
her, since our definitions of differed slightly: my notes say "n.
hard palate, roof of mouth (source: qep'a' 12)", and her definition simply
said "n. palate". So she may have abbreviated her definitions, or perhaps
my source had elaborated it (link: http://klingon.livejournal.com/26647.html,
from http://www.kli.org/tlh/newwords.html).

If someone else has seen the above four words before, please post the
definitions you have. Otherwise, I'll post the ones I copied from her in a
little bit.
