Re: Years IR

I didn't follow all of the thread, just giving some comments on grammar.

ghItlh "Se'noj" <>:

>DaH wa'SaD wejvatlh SochmaH Soch wo'DIS
You have no verb here. How about {DaH qaS...}

If you want to say "the year x", in Klingon it is {DIS x}:
TKD 5.2.
<<<<When a number is used for numbering, as opposed to counting, it follows the noun. Compare:

    {DuS wa'} "torpedo tube number 1"
    {wa' DuS} "one torpedo tube

>neH wa' wIwIv 'e' vIHar 'ej wo'DIS 'e' QaQ Dochvam 'e' vIHar
{wa' neH}
TKD 5.4. Adverbials 
<<<<Also unlike the other adverbials, {neH} can follow a noun. In such cases, it means "only, alone.">>>>
You think you "need to...", then you could use the #2 suffix {-nIS}
You "like {wo'DIS}"? So why don't you say it this way? Verbs can be used like {parHa'} or {maS}.

>It is now 1377 IR
>I believe that we need to choose one, and I like {wo'DIS}
That's not an SKI, it's a translation :-)
