Re: Klingonase vs. tlhIngan Hol
But I hav heard Worf use Klingoneese as the word 4 the
Klingon language. If so, why is this a point of
contention. All we are saying is the same thing 4 the
same word. Now if we want to be technical, correct me
if I'm wrong, but anything written in books is
considered non-cannon. Anything produced on t.v. or
in the movies is considered cannon. If the former is
correct, then anything written by Ford would be
non-cannon. To be exact so is the Klingon Dictionary.
As someone pointed out earlier, some of the other
shows, since ST3 have strayed away from the Klingon
Dictionary. So this would seem to prove my theory.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
