YES! How many times do I have to say it? WE DON'T HAVE PROPER KLINGON 
GRAMMATICAL TERMS SO I'M USING APPROXIMATIONS TAKEN FROM ENGLISH. Hell, 
we don't even have the Klingon words for "subject" or "object."

Listen, bub, you're just being a jerk now. You don't "think it's worth 
pointing out" anything because you have a contribution to make; you want 
to find fault. You take every opportunity you can to attack and ridicule 
me, and to try to make yourself seem really clever in doing so. Knock it 
off. This ain't YOUR list or YOUR language.
