Due to the amount of typographical errors in the early books such as TKD, I 
suspect that a lack of diligence in following only one set of standards has 
resulted in anomalies.  Whether the correct spelling in the "real" tlhIngan 
Hol orthography results in one or more words remains to be seen.  These 
inconsistencies exist; I don't try to talk about them; I just use what we 
have been given.
