Re: Can YOU speak Klingon?

Here's an interesting coincidence concerning speaking Klingon: Anyone watch last nights episode of The Simpsons? ("My Big Fat Geek Wedding")

"Marge, you just agreed to raise the kids Klingon!"

I watched a documentary by Marc Okrand on how he went about it. It was thoroughly enjoyable, speaking as a philologist.

I know a few words of Klingon, but that's it.

Now for the ultimate admission of geekdom: I am creating a language for the Cardassians and I use it in my fanfic.
