A Klingonist is somebody who is interested in the study of the Klingon culture, concentrating on the Klingon Language. A Klingonist does not necessarily speak Klingon.

This page lists current and former Klingonists. Many Klingonists today know one another and some of the other "big names" from the KLI mailing list or other social media pages like Facebook, but it might be good to list some of the prominent names in Klingondom, past as well as present, so that references to earlier generations might not be missed by newcomers, and similarly so incoming Klingonists will know the current crop.

Klingonists of Note

This list is made only for Klingonists who have achieved a special level of Klingon language skill or who have contributed in a special way to the Klingon community, such as Beginners' Grammarians, people who translated special works or have made interesting apps, and so on. If you are not sure if a person should be added, then think about whether you can write an article about their efforts.

Order is currently alphabetical by real last name. [edit list]
