vIl is a verb meaning be ridgy. A raised ridge pattern is Su'nIm. There is a noun vIl, but it is unrelated and means hanger-on, something that is "just there."
Klingon has no articles a, an, or the. You can't say a * by putting a wa' in front of it. That means one ,* which is not the same thing.
So far as I know, we don't have a word meaning a single ridge.
That doesn't seem to be on the New Words List, though it sounds familiar. I'll ask on the mailing list.
Are we counting ridges? Is this like seeing who can pee farther? These contests never involve anything that I can compete in. What about a stinkiest armpit contest? I will own all you biatches.
