Three straight out errors and some omissions noted on a quick skim.   DON’T send other people your personal lists unless you are going to be very careful. DON’T accept other people’s personal lists unless you don’t care about the accuracy of your Klingon words.

Greetings all,


This afternoon we revealed a number of new words from Dr. Okrand and Maltz. 


We distributed these words to the qep'a' attendees in a booklet, and in order to preserve the look of that book I've posted all the pages as images online, on the KLI website:




Go and look at the words! yItIv! 


If you have any questions about the words, send them to me and I will see if I can get answers from Marc.
