Thanks a lot for that. I'll edit this in my video.

You mention that in boQwI', but I have compared those two scenes and
they definitely do NOT match in lips movement: When final version Uhura
says {jIyI'} the teeth stick together, but in the frist version with
{HIja'}, her mouth definitely opens for the sound {a}.

But as you said before, they may have recorded this several times, and
we may not see what Okrand used to work on.

Oh, yes, indeed, it is. It think it's very ironic that this exactly the
same thing he had tow work with when he started with ST3 so many years
ago (or even ST2, if yu want to include the vulcan dialogue.)
