"be' yajbe' tlhIngan."

Translation:The Klingon did not understand the woman.

For me, it kind of sounds like the is an "o" in front of the "be' ". It is a little bit confusing


The onset of the b is an m. Not something I frequently do, or remember doing deliberately, but mb is an allophone of b in Klingon, so I'm going to let it stand, unless Jeremy or mizinamo objects.

    Be careful with your capital i's, your small L's, and your apostrophes:

    pongwIj'e' has two apostrophes, no small L's, one capital i.

    jIyaj has a capital i and no small L.

      Hello mizanamo , Oh, shame that was not part of the course info! Unfortunately, I've lost interest in the klingon course, now.


      I've added an extra note to the tips and notes for the first unit to pay attention to the little curl on the small L to distinguish it from the capital i.

      Thanks for the (indirect) suggestion!
