Re: lu- (was Re: [KLBC] -lu' and -ghach)

ja' QInteS:
>Whatever happened to {tu'lu'} being the exception to adding {lu-}?

It's not an exception.  It's just a common mistake.  See KGT page 168.
There are several pages devoted to a discussion of the issue.  Here is a
relevant quote from page 172:

  "Except in formal situations, however, the omission of {lu-} in
  such cases is often overlooked.  Though technically an error,
  and jarring to many Klingon's ears, it causes no confusion as to
  the intended meaning of the sentence."
