Klingon

Since their childhood, the had been learning Klingon as a secret language. Throughout the film, there are a handful phrases heard. It is not sure who translated these. The grammatical errors indicate that an online translator might have been used, although a back-checking does not provide the same results.

# Klingon Subtitles
1 maqochpu'
2 Soj food
3 I gotta use the... puchpa' bathroom
4 Soj 'eyqu' Delicious sustenance
5 jIHvaD DaneH'a' vay' Sov'e' Is there something you want to tell me?
6 puH Duj ngaQHa'moHwI'mey Car keys are on the table!
7 lu', lojmIt Dop OK. Side door!
8 maqochpu'

Notes

  • #1: In the first scene, they refer to each other as maqochpu', i.e. "pals, best friends". This is grammatically correct, but the word refers to male friends. The female version would have been chajpu'.
  • #5: The unusual and incorrect word order of this sentence indicate the usage of a translation software.
  • #6: The Klingon phrase is only "car keys". It is not sure why the rest is missing.
  • #7: Literally, this is "side of the door". The intended meaning of "side door" would be reversed: Dop lojmIt

Trivia

book from the movie
The book from which they are learning Klingon is not The Klingon Dictionary. It is a fictive book entitled "Klingon as a language", subtitled "A complete guide for learning how to speak Klingon." This book was published on ebay.us in October 2021, but then quickly removed again. On that page, it was described as a copy of Merriam-Webster's Intermediate Thesaurus with over 880 pages. It is not sure whether the person tried to sell the real prop from the movie, or if it was just a joke.
