Re: Can YOU speak Klingon?

I've got two Klingon books and seem to have one phrase memorised; "Where do you keep the chocolate." I can say it, I sure as hell can't spell it.

I've picked up a few words accidentally along the way watching it. But I think most have picked up a word or two...

Oddly I have a bible quote I translated to annoy the Christian Heavyweight Champion, telling him he can't truly understand the bible until he'd read it in the original Klingon

Re: Can YOU speak Klingon?

There's an annual production of "A Klingon Christmas Carol", the Dickens classic performed in tlhIngan Hol each year in the Twin Cities in Minnesota. It's always been a one-night-only type of thing. This next year there will be a three-week run. Please come up and join us. Late-November/December is the perfect time to visit MN!

For info on the last two years' worth of the show, you can go to

No, but I do need to find a Klingon Bible to memorize some passages from.

Re: Can YOU speak Klingon?

No. I've never felt the need to learn a fictional made-up language. Although I used to build models of the ships, etc. which the local hobby shop displayed. So in all honesty, I cannot claim to be totally non-geek... nor ridicule anyone who does study Klingon.

Theres one online, but I don't think it's fully translated to fit the grammer, just word replacement.

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 know the episode your talking about, when I first heard that line I laughed like HELL!Episode was a classic! by the way I don't speak KLINGON! I am a NERD(and proud of it), but I'm not that big of a NERD!

I do not. But I do have conversational Klingon tapes that my mom got me years ago. Never really tried, though. And how "conversational" can Klingon be, I wonder?
Humans do not speak Klingon!
