Right; I was just curious how widespread using this terminology was, since it hasn’t been used AFAIK in any of the canonical descriptions of Klingon grammar.

As for dative/benefactive, I’m accustomed to benefactive falling under the dative umbrella already in some Earth languages I happen familiar with, so I didn’t think of benefactive as being separate from dative in the moment, but you’re right that {-vaD} covers both in Klingon and should be acknowledged as both.
