It was the most complex language Sato had yet encountered, and she projected her feelings of failure
    onto T'pol, interpreting T'Pol's actions as second-guessing and a lack of confidence in her.
Sato discovers that even though Context is critical in every language, Kreetassan has the most subtle
    variations that she's ever seen;  The same word can have a dozen different meanings.  (Technically,
    the Kreetassans would perceive them as a dozen *different* words; it's only the non-native
    speaker's insensitivity to the relevant variations that blurs them together.]   For example, the words
    for "eat" and "mate" are nearly identical -- The concepts of "eat" and "mate" being contained in
    one such word, the difference being whether the first syllable is emphasized or not.)

tostka = (we are) insult(-ed)
hwajat = eat
