"mara 'oH pongwIj'e' 'ej tlhIngan Hol vIyaj."

Translation:My name is Mara and I understand Klingon.

pongwIj'e' should be pongwI'e'
because she is a being capable of language :)


She is indeed a being capable of language. However, her name is not so the original sentence is correct.


I see now, I'm still getting used to this fairly exotic language (from english at least) Thank you


Please note that if there were such a thing as "a name which is a being capable of language" there would have to be three apostrophes total in pongwI''e' (one for the -wI' and two for the -'e').
