Once, many years ago, Marc Okrand was asked about some of the more
difficult sound combinations to produce in rapid Klingon speech.  The
{-Dt-} in {moDtaH}, for example, takes good "eye-tongue" coordination. :-)
Someone suggested the {-rgh} as in {chargh} as being problematic, but Marc
just looked as if he didn't understand the trouble and spoke it with a
[lazy] American "r".

[I don't remember from whom I heard this, sorry.]
