javlogh means "six times".
wejlogh means "three times".
I believe you're thinking of -DIch.
javDIch - sixth
wejDIch - third
What is /cha'SaD cha'/? ... DIS.
Third what? ... jaj
DIS cha'SaD cha' jar jav jaj wej, ...
Year 2002 month 6 day 3, ...
Yes, DIS and jar refer to klingon units of time measurement, but most people
don't have a problem with this. Many (all?) of us use these terms for the
> toQ patlh Soqta'mo' ˜ Because he achieved Bird of Prey Rank
Soq - ?
Suq - "acquire, obtain, get
baj - earn
chav - achieve
/Suq/ sounds more like "Oh hey, look what I found. This would look nifty on

ghov - recognize
So before this they didn't know who he was?
- 1) to know again, to recall to mind, to authenticate, identify.
- 2) to acknowledge and show appreciation.
I believe the klingon /ghov/ is only the first definition.
quvmoH - honor
naD - commend
/vatlh/ is the hundred forming element, not /vetlh/.
prefix lu-, they to him. /wey/ is grammaticly singular; a single unit.
It to him - no prefix.
> 'ej luHem ˜ and are proud of him.
Hem - "be proud". Not "be proud of".
"they be proud him"
ghaHmo' Hem - "Because of him, they are proud."

Very shaky. But I can't think of anything good either.

I have no problem with this; after all, what's "sushi"?
And of course hopefully /tlhargh/ is "scout".
