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.
