More Information

For Klingons, even though there is a word for "cry" (SaQ), there is no word for "tear" or "tears," undoubtedly because Klingons have no tear ducts. The only thing Maltz could think of that eyes do from time to time is "redden" (DoqchoH, literally "become red" or "change to red"). (HolQeD v12 n4)
