It's sort of hard to say for sure. I don't believe we've seen it used in canon ever and the definition in The Klingon Dictionary has it in the plural, but is that referring to a set of life signs, or life signs as an uncountable mass? I think I would be fine accepting it as a single set of life signs until we get further clarification. But fortunately, since plural markers are optional in Klingon, a sentence like this one from the course could be referring to them as either a single set, multiple sets, or an indistinguishable mass of life signs.
I've listened to the full sentence male and female audio and the single word audio (female only) and all end in a stopped vowel. Don't depend on the echo vowel that is sometimes produced as a side effect of closing the glottis, as a means of identifying the stop.
And no, Marc is not doing any recordings here.
It was definitely my voice that recorded the male audio for that sentence (mara, bIyIt). I don't normally sound close enough to be confused for Dr. Okrand, but there have been a couple recordings where I was surprised to hear that something I did on those particular recordings did sound almost exactly like him.
