Re: tlhIngan Hol pojwI' chu'

nuQum HovqIj:

: I've gone through the lessons. They are really useful for beginners, I
: suppose. They are also a good tool for freshing up grammar and vocab for
: anybody who has been studying the language for some time. Nevertheless I
: noticed a few (mostly) minor errors. Here's what I've found:
: 1.05. test: *{nISwI' beH ghaj toQDuj} should be {nISwI' DaH ghaj toQDuj}

In light of the new BoP Poster, Holtej may want to add {nISwI' tal}
"disruptor cannon" as a variant.

: 1.07. test: "your (pl) student" should be {ghojwI'ra'}, not {ghojmoHwI'ra'}
: 1.11. test: "The student remembers the Klingon language." "student" is still
:             {ghojwI'}, not {ghojmoHwI'}...

You had it right the first time: {ghojwI'} student ("one who learns"),
{ghojmoHwI'} teacher/instructor ("one who teaches/instructs").  Cf. TKW p.199:

	ghojwI'pu'lI' tISaH 
	Care about your students.

BTW, *{ghojmoHwI'} isn't attested in canon, though it seems obvious
(questions about the nature of {-moH} aside <g>).
