An interesting reference for the major Trekkie or Trekker. Learn how to insult your enemies, compliment your friedns, or confuse the mailman.

Even more useful phrases to learn are "Where is the bathroom?" (nuqDaq 'oH Qe' QaQ'e')' "No, I have a headache" (ghobe' jhweQ), "where do you keep the chocolate?" (nuqDaq yuch Dapol) and "Your nose is shiny" (bach ghlchraj)

This one is mainly for Trekkies. However, anyone interested in the formation of language will find this book interesting. Chapter by chapter it looks at: the sound, grammar; the nuances, suffixes, etc. of nouns, verbs, pronouns, etc.; syntax; shortened forms; as well as including a dictionary Kilngon to English, English to Klingon.

Although the "useful phrases" section is only 4 pages long, there are numerous phrases I can teach in my Kindergarten class, like, "VLTA'PU'BE" (I didn't do it), "BLLEBLS" (I need a rest), "CHAY'" (How did this happen?), "HLGHOS" (Come here!) "JLWQU" (I have a headache), "YUQDAQ YUCH DAPOL" (Where do you keep the chocolate?), and every teacher's favorite, "TACHDOQ MAGHAM" (We will meet in the cocktail lounge)
