I don't recall if anyone has pointed this out before, but does anyone else
find these backwards? Why isn't it {'ev chan 'ev 'amerI'qa'} and {tIng chan
tIng 'amerI'qa'}? I'm probably just forgetting some rule that applies only
to the compass directions.

I wonder how a Klingon would then render "the American South" (i.e., the
southern United States, a geographic and cultural region to the south of
the country)? Ditto "the American North".
