maj. bIghojmo' jIbelbej.

I do have some corrections here. First, a simple suffix order problem:

With <nuq Dajatlh DaneH>, I am pretty sure you meant "what you want to say",
but Klingon doesn't work like this. The word <nuq> can only be used for
asking a question, so it is less flexible than the English word "what",
which can do several other things. Instead, you have to use a <-bogh>
clause. I'd go with <Hoch Dajatlhbogh> - "everything you say". Also, you
have to change the prefix on <yaj> from <jI-> to <vI->:

Hoch Dajatlhbogh vIyajchu'
