I am an intellectual property attorney who recently gained an interest in the Klingon language due to an article I read online:



I think the question of whether a created language can be copyrighted is a great one!  (Personally, I don’t think it can because of the functional nature of a language.)


I’ve only been studying for about a month, mainly by listening to “Conversational Klingon,” on my iPod.

At this point I have a couple of questions.  For one, what would you say to someone who you approach in order to get their attention and start a conversation?  nuqneH seems like something you’d say to someone who approaches you.

Second, what is the correct pronunciation for “tlhIngan Hol?”


I know Ill have more questions, but I thought I’d start with these two.
