>From TKD 3.3.4:
It is grammatically correct to use the regular possessive suffixes with
nouns referring to beings capable of speech (as in {puqlIj} "your child"),
but such constructions are considered derogatory; {joHwIj} for "my lord"
borders on the taboo. Students of Klingon should bear this in mind.
