Part of the exhibition was an introduction to the Klingon language, realized as an interactive learning program, which the visitors could take on a computer terminal with touch screen (2). Unfortunately this introduction contains several spelling mistakes:

Wrong spelling Corrected spelling Translation Notes
nuq neH nuqneH What do you want? This greeting is composed of two words, but as a term on its own written without a space.
HaB sosli Quch Hab SoSlI' Quch Your mother has a smooth forehead. In Klingon the B is always lower case, while the S is alsways upper case. The apostrophe is missing.
Heghlu'meh QaQ jajvam Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam Today is a good day to die.

The sentences are spoken by a Klingon and the visitor has the chance to repeat it. The visitor receives a feedback, if the pronunciation was correct or not.
