tlhIngan Hol capitalizes a few letters -- I, H, S, D, Q...  (did I miss
any?)  The fact that they're capitalized is strange and mysterious, with
the exception of "Q".  There is a "Q" and there is a "q", and they have
different (though similar) sounds.  For the others, there are no
lower-case versions, so why they are that way is unknown.

The Klingon Dictionary contains a full pronunciation guide in the first
chapter for each of these letters.
