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

<div dir="ltr">As a regular user of boQwI&#39;, I can say the entries are clearly marked in a way that users cannot miss. For example, I wasn&#39;t familiar with {pabpo&#39;} so I typed it in, and this came up:<div><br></div><div>?pabpo&#39;</div><div>n. grammarian</div><div><br></div><div>That question mark is really conspicuous. I don&#39;t have to read the entry to know that I should be really careful about using that word. And once I think that, I&#39;m going to read the entry to figure out why I should be careful.

I&#39;d briefly answer: use canon only.<br>
A longer answer would point to the problem that many people do not read the entry completely so they may think the shown word is correct or real canon. Once an incorrect/fake/noncanon word is flying around in the web, it is really hard to catch it again (as happened with incorrect word {qaqItlhneS}, based on {qaqIHneS} &quot;I&#39;m honored to meet you&quot;)<br>
You never know who will copy your word list or learn from it and reproduce it on other places, claiming it to be true klingon.<span class="HOEnZb"><font color="#888888"><br>
