For a school project I am compiling a list of Klingon Phrases relating
to 7th grade. I was wondering if anyone could translate some phrases
for me?  THANKS!

.I understand.
.I do not understand.
.Do we have homework?
.What time is it?
.Who is your favorite teacher?
.Yes.
.No.
.Maybe.
.Your mothers forehead is smooth!

And any other good phrase you think I should add! I need this ASAP!
Please Help!

Thanks but that doesn't help much because I need those specific phrases not a giant, hard to sort through list. Thanks for trying, but I am looking for someone who can actually translate these for me.

Ent19, I believe this is probably a joke honestly. Honestly kid, why don't you just make it up. Unless your teacher is a Trekkie. In which case your probably screwed because as geeky as most of us are.I don't think many of us are THAT bad.

By M.A. I assume you mean Memory Alpha.

Here's the Klingon Language page:

The best part about MA, is that they have a pronunciation guide for phonics, prefixes and suffixes, so you can get rid of that Terran accent.

Thanks to all of you! An by the way if you were wondering why I need to have Klingon Phrases for school, my class is making a magazine as our end of the year project and we could do whatever we wanted for it so I chose to do this! :honorable:

One more thing I remembered; klingons have said "human" but the proper way to say that is tera'ngan

Klingon = tlhIngan

Guess the following:

romuluSngan, vulqangan, verengan, qarDeSngan

You should download a font if you want to make it look cool. Problem is, some of the Klingon fonts available on the net may vary and may not correspond to the Klingon alphabet.

Cool, I'd like to speak Klingon, but I'm a lazy git when it comes to languages...

Important thing to remember also...English goes by subject-verb-object. Klingon is the reverse of this.

I honestly tried. I had purchased an original blue paperback copy of The Klingon dictionary back in '84 or '85 when it first came out and that shit is frustratingly hard.
