<body class='hmmessage'><div dir='ltr'>tlhobpu' Alex, jatlh:<br>&gt; Did the Klingon TalkNow! CD come up with the tlhIngan Hol for<br>&gt; "international?"<br><br>jang nIqolay, jatlh:<br>&gt; I'd probably use an N-N phrase like Hoch Sep tengchaH, "every nation's<br><div>&gt; space station", or perhaps Sep law' tengchaH "many nations' space<br>&gt; station", or even Sep jIj tengchaH "cooperative nations' space<br>&gt; station".<br><br>Ooo. That last one is quite nice. I didn't use {Sep} in mine only because I'm not sure whether a politically independent country would be seen as a {Sep}, or as a {wo'}. (The United States, for instance, is a single sovereign nation but is {'amerI'qa' SepjIjQa'}.)<br><br>taH:<br>&gt; (You can use adjectives in an N-N phrase, right? I'm sure I've seen<br>&gt; that before.)<br><br>Yep, you can indeed. The 'u' Invitation has {poH tuj bI'reS} "summer solstice" [sic - literally "the introduction of the hot period"]. In fact, we also even have one using {law'}: on the BoP poster is {lo' law' lojmIt} "utility hatch" - literally "many-uses hatch".<br><br>QeS<br></div> 		 	   		  </div></body>
