Reprint of list of words occurring in 1990 in veS QonoS


Written by Lawrence M. Schoen

One of the purposes of the KLI is to establish and maintain a collection of works relating to Klingon language and culture. The following is an excerpt from an issue of veS QonoS, a newsletter published by Mortas-Te-Kaase, dated 1990. It was supplied by Tom Scheuer who, along with Marc Okrand, graciously provided permission for its reprinting in HolQeD. While a few of the items below were more formally published in last year's reissue of TKD, most of them will be new to you, and are a welcome addition.

The following word list was granted permission for publication in veS QonoS by the HolloD on 490/3.18 (Copyright 1990 Marc Okrand). Reprinting of this list in any other work is prohibited without the express permission of Marc Okrand.
