You cannot always reverse such info. It never sai that it ONLY means
reading from a book. I see this more literally: In English, I may say "I
now speak the words from the book". Do you know if I have the book, or
know from my mind? I think the same happens in Klingon. The phrase does
not include the reading, and it does not exclude reciting by heart.

That is a good question, and I know that it's already on Maltz' desk.
We just need to be patient a little. Maltz is traveling a lot.
