KLI Projects

The diversity of the Klingon Language Institute is nowhere as apparent as in its sponsored projects. You are invited to take an active role in the Klingon movement and lend your participation to any of the efforts described here:

Extended Corpus Project

Acknowledging the presence of things Klingon prior to Dr. Okrand's creation of the language, the ECP is an effort to compile a comprehensive glossary of all Klingon names, terms, and phrases from the multitude of canonical fiction published. If you enjoy reading these ongoing sagas and can take notes while doing so, you can lend your support by writing for more information (along with a SASE) to:

Bill Longton

Klingon Writing Project

After completing the Postal Course many members decide to practice their skills with original compositions. For those intent on creating original epics in the warrior's tongue, willing to share their stories and songs, the KWP is there. Send in your submissions of poetry and prose to:

Klingon Writing Project
P.O. Box 794
Blue Bell, PA 19422 USA

Klingon Bible Translation Project

Co-ordinated by Kevin Wilson, the KBTP's has assumed the immense task of translating the books of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, into Klingon. Obviously the KLI's goals do not include missionary work, but this is a project worthy of our efforts for purely secular reasons. Interested members can find out more by sending a SASE to:

Klingon Bible Translation Project

Klingon Shakespeare Restoration Project

Taking its cue from Star Trek VI, the KSRP has as its goal the restoration of the complete works of Shakespeare to the "original Klingon." One of the KLI's proudest accomplishments was the publication of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (The Restored Klingon Version) in March 1996, with a paperback version from Pocket Books in 2000. We hope to publish translations of Much Ado About Nothing and Macbeth in the future; these translations are already in progress. To find out how you can help others to experience the Bard in his native language send a SASE to:
