Learning Klingon Language
 
I have just downloaded a free Klingon Language course and ordered the Klingon Dictionary from Amazon marketplace. I'm very keen on learning languages and have a talent for them. Has anyone else tried to learn Klingon? If so, how easy did you find it?

I've read/heard the "Dictionary", the "Galactic Traveler", "Power Klingon", the "Warrior's Guide", "Conversational Klingon" and used the "Klingon Language Lab".
I remember several sentences and grammar, I've also memorized some songs from episodes. It is an easy language when grammar is concerned, but it's hard to remember the words.

Sounds like fun and probably more useful that the New Testament Greek I learned as part of my degree. I'll give it ia shot :)

I recommend www.kli.org ;)

I have the Dictionary, and the Galactic Traveler, but I haven't really tried to learn yet. I know only a few words.

Like DIron HoD means Captain Bagpipes.

We have a Klingon thread here... http://www.startrekmovie.com/forums/...read.php?t=233

How did I miss that?

My Klingon Dictionary arrived today. It made me laugh and reminded me of when I studied New Testament Greek. We had to translate things like "The goats and the virgins are in the field." Now I'm learning Kligon, it's phrases like "They are searching for the enemy in order to kill him/her" - jag luHoHmeH jagh lunejtaH

I have a audio cd put out back in the dark ages of 1992 called Star Trek Conversational Klingon with Michael Dorn teaching. Tracks include : 1 Pronunciation ; 2 Grammer ; 3 Numbers ; Time and Everyday Usage. Its an adaptation of the Klingon Dictionary. Is this what you have?

janeway72 07-31-2009 08:15 PM

It may be. I'm not sure but the video that NCC-73515 has posted on here is the same as the CD I think. It is certainly Michael Dorn's voice
