> In this conversation Okrand gives ordinal numbers for age, beginning with
{DIS paghDIch} for the year following birth. This conflicts with the way I
thought Klingon birthdays were numbered: {qoS wa'DIch} for the actual day
that someone is born, {qoS cha'DIch} for its first anniversary, etc.. It
would hardly make sense for the zeroth year to start on the first birthday
and end on the second, but perhaps I'm mistaken about this birthday
numbering, since I can't find a source for it.
