Thanks for the nice words about the books.

For people new to the language, it's important to remember (as DloraH pointed out) that there's often not a one-for-one equivalence between Klingon words and English words. That doesn't mean that it's impossible to express some particular idea in one language or the other; it's just that you have to get at what you mean in a different way. It may be that what's an individual word in one language is expressed by a phrase or a suffix or something in another.
