More Information

This is a shortened form of the expression 'ej De' vIchel.
This comes at the beginning of a sentence. [...] In everyday conversation, 'ej and/or De' (and even vI-) are often omitted. Klingon grammarians argue about whether the resulting De'chel should be considered an adverbial in its own right. (qep'a' 2020)
