[Tlhingan-hol] keeping "KLI folklore" words in word lists

De'vID (

<p dir="ltr">What&#39;s everyone&#39;s opinions on whether &quot;KLI folklore&quot; words like *{HIlel} and *{tlhoqo&#39;} belong in word lists? In {boQwI&#39;}, I have the former but not the latter, mostly because I felt that any explanation of the origin of *{tlhoqo&#39;} would come across as mean-spirited. I also have *{pabpo&#39;} but not *{yID}, because the first has general utility and the other is an in-joke. It seems likely that anyone who&#39;d understand any of those four words would understand the others, anyways.</p>
<p dir="ltr">Should I remove *{HIlel} and *{pabpo&#39;}? Add {tlhoqo&#39;} and *{yID}? Leave things as they are? If I were keeping the word list just for myself, I&#39;d have all four (annotated to indicate folklore and not canon). But since I&#39;m maintaining a public list that a lot of people refer to, I feel I need to perhaps be more strict or consistent.</p>
