(MO to Felix, 3/2015):  Maltz is a devotee of Shex'pir, as he is of other traditional Klingon literature.  He said that in the original Klingon version of the play, {yulyuS qaySar} was told to beware of the {maS'e' So'bogh pagh}, the full moon.  He said he really doesn't know why this was changed in the English translation [i.e. to "the Ides of March"], but he guessed it may have something to do with how Earth calendars work or used to work.  Regarding *{jep}, he said he'd never heard *{jarjep} (or *{DISjep} or *{Hoghjep} or the like), but if someone were to say a word like that, he'd probably get the gist of what was meant.
