Re: taglines



jatlhta' David Barron:
: 
: 
: I have a list of taglines I captured from a Klingon EchoNet. I have not
: corrected them but I can leave that to you. 
[...]
: Duj tIvoqtaH
: *Always trust your instincts.
>Duj yivoqtaH< - even though >Duj< represents a plural, it's an irregular
plural, and is grammatically treated as a singular.

[...]
: qamDu'majDaq Hegh qaq law' qIvDu'majDaq yIn qaq puS
: *Dying on our feet is better than living on our knees!
This is what the infamous tlhoqo' said to get ejected from the list -- though
he said it in Yiddish, not Klingon.

[...]
: QIpwI'Hom nga'chuq wIrI'neS Hoch!
: *All do the honor of hailing TFLT!
TFLT? nuq 'oH jay'?

[...]
: tera'ngan Hol yIjatlh!  He'So'bejtaH QIchlIj!
: *Speak English!  Your accent stinks!
ravDaq jinoghtaHviS jiHaghqu'bej. Hee. ;>

[...]
: verenganpu' yIvoqtaHQo'
: *I don't trust Ferengis.
"Never trust a Ferengi."

[...]
: wa'DIch, chutqeqwI'pu' DIHoH!
: *First, we kill the lawyers!
viparHa'bej, but I'm not sure >qeq< is the right verb here.


: wej jIcheghbej.
: *I'll be back.
\tugh jichegh'egh\ DaneH'a'?

:  
: wIHoHbe'lu'chugh wIHoSchoHmoHlu'
: *That which does not kill us makes us strong.
Fine, though I probably would have done >nuHoHbe'chugh nuHoSchoHmoH<.

[...]
: yap!  nujlI' yISoQmoH, Ha'DibaH!
: *Enough!  Shut your mouth, animal!
>nujli' yiSoQchoHmoH<, probably.

:  
: yIHmey vImuSqu'
: *I hate tribbles!
>vimuSbej<?
