>(jes. so we have to create grammar terminology. right? for example, "header".)

Making up grammar terminology is arguably okay among people who already
speak Klingon well.  It's a very dangerous thing to do in the presence of
beginning students of the language.  And I'm firmly convinced that it's a
Bad Thing for the beginners themselves to do.

(Apparently, it's also dangerous to have side discussions about English
grammar terms, even when they are accompanied by disclaimers stating that
they have no bearing on Klingon grammar.)
