Does *jatlh* ever really get glossed with /tell?/ The original TKD had
/say/ and /speak/ in translations, but only /say/ in the Klingon–English
word list and only /speak/ in the English–Klingon word list. *jatlh* is
repeated in both the Addendum word lists with /say/ but not
/speak./*ja'* is /tell/ (and /report/).
I consider the distinction significant, because saying and speaking mean
using language verbally while telling and reporting mean imparting
Unless there is a further gloss not listed, this entry should be corrected.
