(Okrand to Lieven, 11/20/2009):  [Lieven told Okrand that it was difficult to describe his job as an architect in Klingon. Here's Okrand's answer:]  I did see him [Maltz] earlier today as he was running off to grab a cup of coffee or something. I told him about the lack of good words relating to architecture. He said he wasn't an architect himself, so he'd have to think about that. But he did know the word for plan (the big piece of paper). He said it's {pu'jIn} -- same as the word for map.
