Well, English definitely has objects! Objects are a type of noun (a person,
place, thing, or idea).
The two basic types of nouns (in Klingon main clauses, anyway) are:
English also uses these.
The verb IS the action word(s) in the sentences; every verb in this paragraph
IS in all caps. Once you FIND the verb, the subject and object ARE easier to
The SUBJECT is the person or thing or place that is doing the action. Every
SUBJECT in this paragraph is in all caps.
Not all sentences have an OBJECT. An object, also called a direct object, is
the PERSON, THING, or PLACE that is being acted upon. All the objects in this
paragraph are in all caps.
To use the table on page 33, you must decide what the object of your sentence
is and what the subject of your sentence is.
jISop. I eat. Subject is "I," no object.
maSop. We eat. Subject is "we," no object.
DaSop. You eat it. Subject is "you," object is "it."
boSop. Y'all eat it. Subject is "you (plural)," object is "it."
qagh luSop. They eat gagh. Subject is "they," object is "gagh," which
functions the same as "it."
