Re: [Tlhingan-hol] Stonewall Poster Goes Klingon ...

<div dir="ltr">I scratched my head at {yIqImHa&#39;}.<div><br></div><div style>First, grammar. Wouldn&#39;t {-Qo&#39;} be the usual negative marker for commands? However, {-Ha&#39;} is more than just another negative, so I have no problem using it in commands; others more skilled than me might disagree.</div>
<div style><br></div><div style>Second, semantics. Whether {-Ha&#39;} or {-Qo&#39;} is used, to me {yIqIm-Ha&#39;/Qo&#39;} sounds like &quot;Pay no attention to this fact&quot;. I think the point of the poster is to bring your attention to this fact and demand that you accept it. For that, I&#39;d say {yIlajqu&#39;}. On the other hand, maybe it&#39;s a brusk &quot;Mind your own business&quot;, which is very Klingon. YMMV--I&#39;d like to hear what others think.</div>
<div style><br></div><div style>Finally, the I&#39;s in {yIqImHa&#39;} should technically be capital, but since there&#39;s no dot, I won&#39;t quibble over it.</div><div style><br></div><div style>bI&#39;reng</div></div>
