1) You're not helping anyone by refusing to indicate pauses and intonation
in your Klingon sentences.

2) Curly brackets are neither used nor mentioned in TKD. We use them here
because we want to be able to indicate Klingon words and phrases in the
midst of English, and plain text email does not support boldface emphasis.

3) Are you also willing to discuss your sentences with experts? You still
often make beginner's mistakes like using {-chugh} only on the first of
conjoined clauses, or choosing the noun suffix {-vaD} when the verb suffix
{-meH} would be more appropriate, or fixating on a direct translation using
a nominalized verb instead of using the verb itself.

If you continue to dismiss advice from the skilled longtime speakers of
Klingon, your progress will probably stagnate and you will probably never
become one yourself.
