>Try this on for size: {SaqIH 'ej QaQ 'e'} "I meet you and that is good."

The basic problem with this is <... QaQ 'e'>. <'e'> can only be used as an
object; it has no counterpart that can act as a subject. It sounds in
Klingon a bit like "Me want a coke" does in English, but even more awkward
and less understandable.

>Soy'ghach ghaj

This is a good time for a demonstration of Klingon's remarkable economy of
expression: just <Soy'>.
