"mara bolegh'a'? HISlaH. wIlegh."

Translation:Did you see Mara? Yes, we saw her.

What exactly is the difference between Can and Do here?


"Do" is asking for a statement of fact. Did you actually see her? "Can" is asking for a possibility or ability. Were you able to see her if you tried? It's a small difference, but the difference is similar in both English and Klingon so we require them to be properly matched in the Klingon exercises.
