Back then i didn't even know Klingon as a language existed. i thought someone made the letters up,and that's it ; end of story.<o:p></o:p></p></div><p class=MsoNormal style='margin-bottom:12.0pt'>the only disappointment was to find out that when these letters were to be written by hand,a lot of their cool looks,were lost. hand written pIqaD,-or at least written in normal writing speed- lacks a lot,compared to its printed counterpart.<o:p></o:p></p></div><p class=MsoNormal>qunnoQ<o:p></o:p></p></div><div><p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p><div><p class=MsoNormal>On Sun, Oct 18, 2015 at 5:49 PM, Robyn Stewart &lt;<a href=""; target="_blank"></a>&gt; wrote:<o:p></o:p></p><p class=MsoNormal>Of those the L bugs me the most, but then I used to be irritated by words like 'ampaS, qul, and jIb with links back to English.
