the letter t is incorrectly capitalized in four words when it is part of the letter "tlh"

Duolingo's software sometimes creates its own distractors for some multiple choice answers and often recapitalizes the words like you would in a European language. It doesn't do it consistently, but if you see miscapitalized words that is the likely reason.

The letter t is never capitalized in Klingon, whether as the Klingon sound t or part of the Latin digraph tlh. Whether it's the start of a sentence or a proper noun, Klingon capitalization never changes.

Always correct: tlhIngan
Always incorrect: TlhIngan
