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

I'm not a fan of hiding information, even if it's for the assumed best of the user. I don't think it works in the long run.

While I agree with the problems, I don't think pretending those sounds have never been said doesn't solve them.

How about having an entry for the "klingon" word that merely reads "NOT CANON" ? Enough to acknowledge that yes, these sounds have been said, but no, they're not klingon.
It'll keep an uninformed user from using it, and others can then use other sources (i.e. the internet) to find out what's up with them.
But both can look up the word should they stumble across it, and don't have to assume that the program is outdated/incomplete.

Or have the explanation visible once you tap the "NOT CANON" if that's possible easily.

Christoph
