Indeed, but isn't this the genius of klingon ?

This reminds me of a phrase of bruce lee, which was something like:
"as time passes, the master instead of adding things to his art, he's
rather removing things from it". I think that one of the most
impressive attributes of klingon is that in all its' simplicity it
brings shame to natural languages, being able to express almost
everything, without the complexity of a natural language.

This is the true genius of okrand. He created a language, which in its
wonderful lack of complexity, is able to express a billion things.
