What is this?

The Klingon language - in Klingon: tlhIngan Hol - was invented by Dr. Marc Okrand for Paramount Pictures, originally for the third Star Trek movie in 1984. Rather than making just a code for English, Dr. Okrand decided to make a true language with linguistically interesting features. This wiki summarizes everything that is related to this language: its history, information about grammar and vocabulary, but also lots of background information about Klingon and those who speak it.
Besides of that, this wiki offers information about available products like T-shirts or music, explaining whether it is true Klingon or just gibberish.
