RE: KLBC - a question which has puzzled me

I don't know why he would try to kill you.  Klingon doctors DO exist.

Remember the basic word order OVS (Object-Verb-Subject).

> vIja'churgh: "chovoq(HIvoq?), Qel jIH"??

No [r] in -chugh.

/chovoq/ is a statement, "You do trust me."
/HIvoq/ is a command, "Trust me!"

> muHoH pagh muvoq?

This sentence contains no question words or -'a', so it is simply a
statement.  Add a ? doesn't turn it into a question.
