Predecessors are suspicious!

I’m amused that the Klingon word for predecessor, nubwI', looks like the word for “suspect; suspicious person” (nub be suspect</b>, -wI' -er; one who does, thing which is).

I imagine that’s not a coincidence… and I wonder what that says about their thought processes, or about how they consider the people who come before them in, say, political offices :)

(On the other hand, to precede is apparently unrelated: nung.)
