Uh - yeah. I meant that, but spelled it wrong. HIvqa' veqlargh!

I just remembered a canon example from ST5. Only partially used in the 
film, but from Okrand's notes:

vubpu' jonta' HeSwI'. wa' vub ghaH tlhIngan gharwI''e'. wa' ghaH 

I don't have the translation at hand, I'd say this would use a colon in 

"Hostages have been taken: One Klingon diplomat and one Terran."
