Yes!  I knew there was a different word I should have used.  Poor research
on my part.

I didn't have /rItlh/ or /moQ/ in my Klingon DB.  It's there now!

Yes.  That's what I was after.

I actually had /Sam/ in there first... I liked the "sound" of /tu'/ better.
Is there a reason for the difference or is it just more of a preference (two
words meaning the same thing)??

Yeah... /tuq/ was the first word I came to that sort of fit... I knew there
was something better... probably /wey/.

Duj!  I would just think that this would be a GREAT way to communicate on
the field.  Of course, I'd have to hold my tem-mates to a lower standard of
pronunciation than I would normally try for...

[[once I get my website up and running (it will be a paintball info site)
perhaps I'll have to try to do a klingon translated version.  I hope to have
the site up sometime next month and I'll have my info on the membership page
updated then]]
