The thing I was wondering was whether the Klingon sentence can mean what
the English one says.

And -if I understand your reply correctly- indeed the Klingon sentence can
mean what the English sentence says.

Of course, I understand that the Klingon sentence isn't quite clear since
it can mean other things too, so it isn't something I'd choose to use

But -as always- I'm trying to understand how things work.
