[tlhIngan Hol] placing {-lu'} on {'oH} and {ghaH}

Good question. I initially had a similar reaction of doubt, though I resolved it for myself by realizing it’s like saying “One is a Romulan,” with the generic “one”, like “One should finish one’s sentences.”

So, I found it acceptable in a case like, “{romuluSngan ghaHlu’chugh nIvoqlaHbe’ latlhpu’.}

Still, I would find proper use highly uncommon, as experience bears out. I’ve been speaking Klingon a very long time and never came up with a case in which I spontaneously needed {ghaHlu’}, nor have I seen others use it.
