Re: Klingon Ad for my new novel!

I don't have a problem with it so long as it doesn't prevent understanding. As I
said, {DuraS tuq tlhIngan yejquv patlh} works very well stylistically. Even bigger
strings might be OK in the right place. All I'm saying is that *I* have had
issues with large strings in front of conjunctions, so in practice I tend to avoid
them. It's certainly not a law for me, just a tendency I've observed from my
experience writing Klingon.

>If you like certainty, learn Lojban!

Maybe, but I doubt Klingons would take kindly to overly ambiguous speech either. {{:)
