Now I am imagining a Klingon Soong-type android that always uses {lu-}, and maybe also does not use clipped Klingon: {qama'pu' vIjonta' vIneH!}, {wIy yIcha'}, etc. And by always, I mean not always, because Data was never actually consistent with that either, even in some episodes where that behavior was specifically called out in the plot.
