Gina, those were all perfect. majQa'!
Now I have to give you something harder. Lets start with adverbials. An
adverbial tells you HOW something is done. You can read about them in
section 5.4. There is a list of Klingon adverbials on p. 56 of TKD, and a
few more on p.177. In Klingon, most adverbials go BEFORE the
object-verb-subject part of the sentence.
The woman walks = yIt be'.
The woman walks slowly = QIt yIt be'.
Translate into Klingon:
The officer forcefully kicks the prisoner.
A child never dislikes chocolate.
The man always eats breakfast.
Soon the people will kill the emperor. (nothing special is required for
"will kill" - it's the same as "kill")
Translate into English
rut wanI' qaw loD.
pay' Dej qach.
loQ puq ghIj qul.
Make up two Klingon sentences of your own, using adverbials.
