Re: UT question

Not all words and phrases have exact counterparts in other languages. Deanna once made the example of the phrase "Juliet on the balcony."

A Klingon hears through his UT "female name - standing upon - a platform." The UT would have to at least summarize the first act of Romeo and Juliet for "Juliet on the balcony" to accurately describe Juliet's feelings of romance and teenage angst.
