ok, thanks ! and since the matter of subject came up..

do you know any site, where aspect as we use it in klingon is described ?

I have searched repeatedly the web, but the only sites I find are
discussing aspect in conjuction with tenses only to complicate things more.
I need a site where only aspect, and that aspect as we use it in klingon,
is described. but is there anywhere something like this ?
