How do you say my name in Klingon?

wIj pong

Actually, that's completely wrong. It's what you get when you try to do word-for-word translation and ignore grammar. Klingon has its own grammar, which is completely different from English.

In this case, the problem is that -wIj is not an independent word, it is a suffix. So the correct way to say "my name" is pongwIj. Just as you can say paqwIj for "my book", or DujwIj for "my ship", or Qapla'wIj for ("my success").

By the way, there's a different suffix used if the object in question is a person (technically, a being capable of using language). In that case, it's -wI' instead of -wIj. So "my mother" is SoSwI' and "my captain" is HoDwI' and "my friend" is jupwI'. Do not confuse this with the *other* suffix -wI' (there are two). The other suffix -wI' is a verb suffix. It's just like the English suffix "er"-- you stick it on a verb and it turns it into the-one-who-does-the-verb. So, just like "sing" + "er" makes "singer", bom + -wI' makes bomwI', a singer. Of course, once you put the -wI' on a verb, that makes it a noun, and if that noun is a person, you can stick the *other* -wI' on it like this:

bom - sing

bomwI' - a singer

bomwI'wI' - my singer

Sorry to have strayed so far from the original question. Again, "my name" in Klingon is pongwIj. But if the question was how to say your own name in Klingon, then the answer is really to just say it the same way you always do. Names don't really translate. The perfect answer would be to approximate your name as best as possible within the phonology of Klingon. Some names are easy. If your name is "Bob", then you would write it bab, but pronounce it just like you always do. On the other hand, some names have sounds which just don't exist in Klingon. For instance, if your name is "Zeke", you're in trouble, because Klingon doesn't have a Z sound. So I'd just say Zeke. As in: Zeke 'oH pongwIj'e' ("My name is Zeke.")

How do you clean material that says do not dry clean or do not wash?

Coat it in mud, then wait until the mud dries, and break it off. You have to make sure the mud isn't wet though, since wet mud would constitute 'washing'.

How do you say 'Yes I speak Klingon' in Klingon?

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.
