Shouldn't that be: {Dat 'oHtaH batlh'e'} "honor is everywhere"?  Even if it
weren't an equational sentence, {-taH} "continuous" nicely reinforces {Dat}
"everywhere".  Hmmm... or is {Dat batlh 'oH} supposed to mean, "it (either
{ghoch} or {He}) is honorably everywhere"?

BTW: Not that a BG {'utlh} needs reminding, but the difference between {'oH}
vs. {'oHtaH} is beautifully illustrated in SkyBox S27 - a good, simple
to show beginners:

  pa' 'oHtaH vaS'a''e'.  tlhIngan qum waw' 'oH. 
  This is where the Klingon Great Hall is located, the center of
   the Klingon government. S27

Hey, you wanted comments!
