Welcome to the list, Don. Voragh has already provided a very thorough
response to your request, so I won't duplicate the effort. I will introduce
myself, though. My name is pagh, and I am the current Beginners' Grammarian.
It's my job to help beginners learn Klingon. Whenever you have a post you
want help with, mark it for my attention by putting KLBC in the subject
