Hello... I thought I should introduce myself...
[My completely ungrammatical bio in <tlhIngan Hol>
Please *DO* critisize my syntax, 'cause I can't get it right...]

2 Questions:
	What's the difference between <nuv> and <ghot> [person]?
	Does one strictly mean "person", and the other "guy"?

	How does one do the genitive, e.g. "*of* the house of 
	Martok"? Does one just say <martoq tuq>?

Well... that would make sense to me as <wa'> and <Hu'> are both words in
their own right, and the translation makes sense... Though if I wrote <wa'
Hu'> I would probably mean "a day ago", as opposed to "yesterday"... pagh
said: "Do they sound consistently, noticeably different when you say
them?" Hmmm... Sorry to contradict you, but IMHO they do... But that's
just me pacing my speech... 

BTW Did anyone notice that if you translate <DIvI'> [Federation], you can
also get "we accumulate them"... hmmm... kinda reminds me of the Borg...
or the Ferengi :0
