  1. The way that Klingon handles citrus fruits is by using the prototype {na'ran}. A {na'ran} is an orangelike fruit native to Kronos. Descriptors are added to {na'ran} to produce names for other citrus fruits:

    {tera' na'ran'a'} "grapefruit" [lit. Earth super-orange]
    {tera' na'ran wIb} "lemon" [lit. Terran sour orange]

    To distinguish a lime from a lemon, you could use {SuDqu'}:

    {(tera') wIbbogh na'ran SuDqu'}
    {(tera') SuDqu'bogh na'ran wIb}
