Ah, yes, the special soup verb.

Yes. Turks "drink" soup, English speakers "eat" soup, and Klingons -- well, they 'ep soup.

I learned {chatlh} as "thick soup," but that was not accepted as an alternative to "soup."

It's not like thin soup is allowed. It's just that chatlh is thicker than what many English speakers think of when they say "soup". But since both words are listed in the KGT definition, I have added it as an alternative translation.
