... and now I am confused.
I learned that plural ending is optional in Klingon... So I would
expect it would be used basically for emphasis or at least
disambiguation, in common usage.
And {tlhIngan maH} is not ambiguous, as {maH} clearly indicates that
the subject is plural.

On the other hand, I noticed the Duolingo course, especially, always
uses plural suffixes.
