More Information

bachHa' is labelled as a noun in the KGT word list, which might be an intentional mistake by Marc Okrand.

Lawrence M. Schoen talked to Marc about this:
I mentioned that the only problem with the bachHa' error in the book was that it was, by definition, canonical. I could hear him smiling over the phone as he said, "But that's only in the Klingon to English side. It's correct the other way." (date unknown)
