Re: nuq bach?

Doq (doq@embarqmail.com)



I like this.

Mostly, I like it because it reflects on the idea that Klingon doesn't  
really have a word for "where". Instead, it's just a location of the  
question words for "what" or "who". {nuq} and {'Iv} become landmarks  
for the question concerning location.
