Oh good grief. Klingon as we write it ***IS*** a phonetic spelling! Just
tell him it *IS* spelled phonetically, then teach him what the letters stand
> 'Iw qa' qul qa' je DIrI', batlh maQojmeH nuDevjaj.
> EW Ka kool ka je di-ri bat ma-koj-meh nu-dev-jaj
How is "-meh" going to get him to pronounce /-meH/ correctly? Trust me,
spell out the Klingon correctly, and it IS phonetic.
And tell him /yIDoghQo'/ for me! :)
