I think DungluQ is the first word that I've seen that incorporates a lone g .

Except it's not. The first syllable is Dung and the second syllable is luQ.

Ok. Can this word be broken down and analyzed?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jdmcowan

Not really. There is also a word Dung which means "area above", but it does not seem to be related and we don't know of any root luQ.

The Latin letter g is here part of the digraph ng, which is one Klingon letter.

I'm sure you've seen the letter ng before in words such as tlhIngan or tera'ngan.
