Do not feel bad, my brother, as I may well have a similar response at the ceremony unveiling our new bortaS class Thursday.
We are definitely a .... passionate ... race.
After the most recent last minute changes, Don't worry about it. Not even medical science can stimulate a response now over the BortaS less than fun stats.
What was fine before and fun to boot is now just a Negh'var clone with no turnrate and a crappy cloak.
a, b, ch, D, e, gh, H, I, j, l, m, n, ng, o, p, q, Q, r, S, t, tlh, u, v, w, y, '
Note that ch, gh, ng, tlh and ' are considered letters in their own right, and that, as a result of this, the word nob would come before ngab in a Klingon alphabetic listing. q and Q represent two different sounds, and are thus sorted as two different letters.
a As in psalm or pa, never as in crabapple.
b As in bronchitis, gazebo or bribe.
ch As in chew or artichoke.
D As in Swedish v?>rd (host), further back than English d as in dream or android. Let the tongue touch halfway between the teeth and the soft palate.
e As in sensor or pet.
gh Put tongue as if to say gobble, but relax and hum. Almost the same as H but voiced.
H As in the name of the german composer Bach. Very strong and coarse. Similar to gh but without humming.
I As in misfit or pit.
j As in junk (with an initial d-sound), never as in French jour.
l As in lunge or alchemy.
m As in mud or pneumatic.
n As in nectarine or sunspot.
ng As in furlong or thing, never as in engulf. Also occurs at the beginning of syllables.
o As in go or mosaic.
p As in parallax or oppobrium, always with a strong puff or pop, never laxly.
q Similar to k in kumquat, but further back. The tongue should touch the uvula while saying this. A puff of air should accompany the sound.
Q A harder variant of q, very strong and raspy.
r A trilled r using the tip of the tongue, as in Swedish r??r (pipe, tube) if properly articulated.
S As in Swedish moth?>rs (against the predominant direction of hair growth e.g. on a pet) or as an English s articulated with the tongue in the Klingon D position.
t As in tarpaulin or critique. It is accompanied by a puff of air.
tlh To learn how to say this Klingon sound, first say l, then keep your tongue in the same position and exhale. Now repeat this, but let the air build up pressure behind your tongue before releasing it. The resulting sound should be voiceless, and you should be able to feel the air escape quite forcefully on both sides of your tongue.
u As in gnu, prune or soon, never as in but or cute.
v As in vulgar or demonstrative.
w As in worrywart or cow.
y As in yodel or joy.
' As in the abrupt cut-off of sound in uh-oh or unh-unh meaning "no". At the end of a word this sound is usually followed by a soft echo of the preceding sound.
