Ok... but there's no known general grammatical construction to use "think" 
(or any other such verb) as "think about"?

Also, another question... how would I say "I forgive you for [something]"? 
Ok maybe a bad example since there seems to be no Klingon word for "to 
forgive", but it's the grammar I'm interested in...
"I hate you for [something]" is easier, but that's a different case, you 
can use -mo' there. But what with "forgive"? If you say "you did something" 
'e' "I forgive it", would that be ok? Sorry if this seems a bit irrelevant 
since there IS no verb "to forgive", but I'm just trying to get a good feel 
for the grammar and explore the language.

Again, a clever solution. :) Just like your solution for the 40 qelI'qam 
radius issue, I never would have thought of that myself!
