You didn't ask for instruction; you asked if anyone wanted to pronounce your
name. I can pronounce it.
Since you can instruct me on klingon, apparently you already know how to
pronounce your own name.
tar - like english tar; that black, sticky stuff.
lung - like loong; like in the word "saloon", with an ending like in "song".
Hom - like english "home", but the H is harsh and raspy like the ending of the
german composer Bach.
Quch - like kooch; but the Q is a harsh, choking like sound from the throat.
I'm not sure why you responded using this other message:
