More Information

On PK, the word maj was used in combination with qab as its opposite. Grammatically, this is not correct, since the exclamation maj is used differently than the adjective qab, and taken literally maj does not mean "be good". This could be interpreted in the situation as a command to a dog, where each word can bee seen as a standalone phrase: maj! - "Good!" vs. qab! - "Bad!".
