I know that most of us already know this, but just to heighten awareness among the less experienced Klingonists, remember that the syllable break for this word in Klingon is {nu-ral} and not the more typical, Engish “neur-al”. Also, it’s extremely unlikely that Klingon would have the English emphasis on the first syllable, nor would the second syllable short-change enunciation of the {a}, as in “father”.

This is like the reminder that {Qap-la’} is not “kah-plah”.

On Earth, nuns walk around classrooms with wooden rulers for knuckle-whacking. On Qo’noS, ghunchu’wI’pu’ have painsticks and disrupters, depending on the level of disapproval one wishes to express about student performance.

Kruge would have made a great teacher. Just ask his second gunner.
