I am rather tired of debating this point. If Klingon for the Galactic
Traveller outlines things that Klingons "actually" say which Okrand
labels "ungrammatical," he is using a softer definition equivalent to
"improper" or "incorrect." Fluent speakers of languages do not
intentionally say things which are ungrammatical.
