Qa'yIn is asking whether Klingons vocally stress *-'e'* when it's acting 
as focus. I don't think they need to: the *-'e'* itself is a sharp sound 
that draws attention.


Vixis in /Star Trek V:/ *'ach HoD, Hevetlh wIghoSchugh, veH tIn wI'el 
maH'e'.* /But Captain, that course will take us into the Barrier as 
well./ Vixis doesn't give particular stress to the *maH, *but her voice 
rises on the *'e'.*
