More Information

notqa' ghIjmeH raghghan describes what a scarecrow is/does. But that's a long phrase for something that will probably come up about a thousand times in the story. The Klingon equivalent is probably wIjwI' ngeb, but Maltz says they don't use such things very much anymore. He did point out that this is a set expression. That is, a wIjwI' ngeb is not a real person posing as a farmer; everyone knows it's a mannequin-like thing.

(Marc Okrand for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, 2020)
