loghDaq Suvrupbogh SuvwI'pu' chaH Hoch SuvwI'pu''e'... Learning a new language may be daunting, but what Klingon warrior does not appreciate a challenge? Marc Okrand is the professional linguist who designed the language of the most popular of Star Trek alien species. Far from meaningless grunting and growling, the klingo-lingo termed "tlhIngan Hol" possesses a rich vocabulary and brilliantly conceived grammatical structure. It is an actual language, ironically considered the fastest-growing on earth. Despite its conciseness, it takes effort to learn the complex syntax and rasping, guttural pronunciation. This is why the majority of its fluent speakers are serious students of linguistics, rather than sci-fi fans. Besides the basic "Klingon Dictionary", Okrand has published two other related books, "The Klingon Way" and "Klingon for the Galactic Traveler", as well as two instructional tapes. These materials provide a remarkably thorough course of study. Upon completion, klinguists are able to converse about practically anything -- although it is especially helpful if the topic relates to war or honor!

This stuff is really easy. In the first part of the books, there are basic klingon grammar rules and helps to pronunce the klingon sounds properly. The last part is an Klingon/English - English/Klingon Dictionary with very much important words vor everyday use. I recommend using this book in combination with the Star Trek Conversational Klingon Tape.

This book will explain the basic of the language, with a small dictionary english <-> klingon, and the structure, even though there are many words missing, you can pretty much word out anything, it even gives out some expression with the proper translation, a good thing to have for proper verbal speach is the tape cassette

I'm rather new to tlhIngan (Klingon) Hol (language). This book is the first and most important reference for the language. The book not only has a collection of words, but a detailed discussion of the the grammar of the language. Intricate and challenging, learning tlhIngan Hol is a great intellectual passtime.
