That's another layer we Klingonists don't have.

That's how I started with Klingon: I transcribed the Klingon dialog in Star Trek III and compared it with the subtitles. I went back and listened to the words in the first Star Trek movie, too. I managed to work out a few bits of the language from that.

I was amazed when I later found out there was a dictionary that made all my work superfluous.
