Re: Word Order

Klingon has no case marking.  Word order matters completely.  The role
of a word is determined by its place in the sentence.

>Or is it more like English?

It's more like English, but not a lot. :-)  Klingon uses a system of
noun and verb suffixes to accomplish a lot of what are separate words
in English.
