I imagine the word for “rubber” is borrowed also. [But clearly not from English!]
qoch'uq

Must've been borrowed from French caoutchouc!

Now we can say Quch qoch'uq!

I’m using a pad. I can’t do any key combinations. CTRL+F is unavailable to me.
If an iPad it be, you can search the page by typing your query in the address bar. In the menu that pops up as you type, there's an option to see the results under the "On this page" heading.

EDIT: By my own count, Klingon is up to 3,714 words.
I would call these lexical units...lexemes, because many of them can be combined to create more complex meanings.

Oh hey! I got that to work!
Now if I can figure out why it sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t...

Here's an Easter egg I just figured out:

'IDnar magic, wizardry

This must come from spelling "Randi" backwards!

Interestingly, I have a word in Kankonian that looks like an Easter egg but is not. In Kankonian, the word for psychic is randi. I was 16 and had never heard of The Amazing Randi.

Orthography reform for Klingon?

wait, never mind. Just replace <ch> with <c>, and it will be fine. Why use <ch> when there is no plain <c>?
Similarly, <gh> with <g>.
