Yes, you've made it clear that you reject TKD's use of the word  
"where" in its explanation of relative clauses.  I can give no more  
fundamental evidence to convince you of its validity.

Since my fundamental goal has always been, and continues to be, the  
use of Klingon as an intelligible language, my grammatical options  
for expressing my thoughts are limited to what is accepted and  
understood by the rest of the community.  vaj nuHHeyvam tIQ
