Re: How good is your Klingon? I need a translation!

A clever reader, who called himself "qurgh of House lungqIj," has pointed out that the transcription is actually tlhIngan Hol DaHaDrup'a'. This translates into "Are you ready to study Klingon?" Clearly the joke is on me, as that answer is a obviously resounding "no." He is thus the winner. You can read more about Klingon on his very own Klingon language website: http://hol.kag.org.

According to qurgh, the sentence breaks down to:

tlhIngan - Klingon
Hol - Language
Da- - prefix for you do something to him/her/it
HaD - to study
-rup - suffix meaning prepared to do the action
-'a' - interrogative suffix
