 If you'd like this list to become generally useful to all of us, 
 please send the list of words AND THE PAGE NUMBER IN KGT WHERE 
 IT APPEARS to the list or to me and I'll get it into the New 
 Words List so we all can use them and understand each other.

What file format is your definition list?  I keep mine in Excel 97 as a
spreadsheet.  Maybe we could trade files.

This is a list containing all words I got from the text of KGT.  Any expanded
definitions are also given.  I currently have 2489 words in my Klingon Index
spreadsheet.  The words are - Klingon-English-Part of Speech-Source
