There does not seem to be a person named Winstone who can only speak Klingon. Klingon is actually a language that comes from the Star Trek television series and is not real.


HIja' jIH jatlh tlhIngan Actually, the above is totally wrong. It is a word-for-word translation that completely ignores Klingon grammar. Klingon grammar is totally different from English grammar. What the above actually translates as is "Yes a Klingon speaks a viewing screen." The correct answer is: HIja', tlhIngan Hol vIjatlh. If you really wanted to emphasize the "I" (as in, "Yes, *I*-- as opposed to someone else-- speak Klingon"), then you could say: HIja', tlhIngan Hol vIjatlh jIH.


Straight from the official Klingon dictionary: vut paq. Just for the record the Klingon language is really called klingoneese. (No Joke!) :)


As far as I know, there's only one native speaker of Klingon--a linguist raised his son speaking only Klingon to him (the child's mother spoke English). Other than that, there are no exact numbers of Klingon speakers in the world.


all animals can naturally speak klingon


The same way as you translate into any other language: by learning the language. I can't speak to Vulcan, but for Klingon, step one is to get "The Klingon Dictionary", by Marc Okrand. It will give you grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary.


Question: Who invented the Klingon language? Answer: Scotty - Kesuvaglar Not really correct. James Doohan, who played Scotty, indeed devised the first few words of Klingon, but it was linguist Marc Okrand who really invented the language. You can buy his book, "The Klingon Dictionary" and learn the language. And in any case, it wasn't any university.


Klingon refers to either the Klingon Race, found in the Star Trek Universe, or the Klingon Language, which the Klingon race uses to communicate amongst each other


Its just like boggle but in the Klingon language, and yes Klingon is a language it was developed over the years by the Klingon language institute


Klingon was created in 1967.


What is Klingon? You're serious? That's Trekkie 101, dude. Klingon is the language spoken by Klingons! There are some super-Trekkies who can actually speak the language with correct grammar! The Klingons are an empirical species that's kind of like the Romulans, except those two species hate each other. If you look up "Klingon" with Google Images, you can see what they look like.

I personally can speak (some) Klingon. If you need to have something translated please post the question on WikiAnswers and I will endevour to translate for you.AnswerI can't speak much Klingon, but I read somewhere that "nuqDaq 'oH puchpa''e'" means "Where's the restroom?" The q is said like a k pronounced at the back of the throat.AnswerYou could also say: nuqDaq yuch Dapol? Which means: Where do you keep the chocolate?AnswerSome of the other more interesting sounds of Klingon are Q, ng, gh, and tlh. Q (which is different from q) is done by basically making a choking sound all the way in the back of your throat. It is the first sound in the popular Klingon word Qapla', which means "success". ng is the same as English ng, but unlike in English, in Klingon it can appear at the *beginning* of a word. For instance, there is the word ngan, which means "inhabitant". To say this, imagine saying "Klingon", but then leaving out the K-l-i, and just saying the "ngon" part.The gh sound is like growling or gargling. Indeed, the Klingon word for gargle uses it twice: ghagh. The tlh is perhaps the hardest to explain. I've heard it described as a t followed by a whispered l (that's a lower case L, not an upper case i). What you do is put the tip of your tongue against the top front of your mouth and make a t sound, immediately followed by letting raspy air come out the sides of your tongue (still leaving it where it was, tip against the top front of the mouth). This sound doesn't exist in English, but does in Aztec. It's a very important sound in Klingon, since it is the first sound in the word for "Klingon", which is tlhIngan. Indeed, to ask someone if they speak Klingon, you would say: tlhIngan Hol Dajatlh'a'? ("Do you speak Klingon?"). Note that tlhIngan means Klingon as in a Klingon *person*. The Klingon Language is said as tlhIngan Hol (Hol means "language"). Oh, let's clarify the I (capital i, not lower case L). This vowel is always pronounced as short English i, as in "big", "sit", or "listen". So, tlhIngan sounds just like "Klingon" except for the tlh at the very beginning instead of K.So let's make a sentence with all these interesting sounds:tlhIngan Qe' DaSammeH Qapla' Daghajjaj."May you have success finding the Klingon restaurant."P.S. If you really want to learn Klingon, you'll want to get "The Klingon Dictionary" by Marc Okrand. More than just a dictionary, it describes the sounds and the grammar and everything. Klingon has a fascinating and unique grammar. For example, if I were to translate the five individual words of the above sentence literally, they would mean "Klingon", "restaurant", "in order that you locate it", "success", and "may you have it".


Hello in Klingon would be "nuqneH."
