Re: [Tlhingan-hol] Greetings from Maltz

qatlh {lutu'lu'} lo'be' matlh?

Curious that Maltz and Marc Okrand seem to make the same grammatical
errors, or, if they are not errors (*cough* *cough*), then the same
intentional deviations from "textbook grammar". I guess since Marc
learned Klingon from Maltz he must have picked up his bad habits.

Say, has anyone ever seen them both in the same room at the same time?

(Has any reason ever been given why {tu'lu'} is sometimes used when
the grammar demands {lutu'lu'}, or is it just one of those things
which happen but are never explained?)
