:   I intend to start simple conversations in thlIngan Hol for those of us
: who are beginners.  I suggest we take each part of the grammar and
: try a couple sentences, in context, using the new part of speech.  We all
: need practice and for myself, I need to start at the very bottom.
: 
:   Since I'm also developing the self-instructional course, it will be good
: to get some examples and feedback on what presents difficulties for
: people.
: 
:   We will start with the easy things and work up from there.  If you're
: interested in participating, please let me know (I'll try to coordinate
: as best as possible).  I also think we should use a FLA (Four Letter
: Acronymn) like the Shakespear/Bible translators are using... if noone
: has a big objection to KLBC (Klingon Language Beginner's Conversations),
: I think that would do...
: 
:   I also suggest to those beginners that you start memorizing vocab..
: Start with the most popular words (learn, think, eat, say, write, book,
