I'm excited to be learning Klingon - tlhlngan? - but I'm not sure how to say...that the Klingon sentences in this multiple choice are capitalized at the start of the sentence. And I'm not sure where to say that...

I was looking back through recent comments and just noticed an important error. Look carefully at the first four letters of the word tlhIngan (look on the Duolingo site, the difference might not show in your email). The second letter is a lower-case L and has a small curl at the bottom of the letter. The fourth letter is an upper-case i and is straight at the bottom without a curl. The font that Duolingo uses is annoying for studying Klingon, but if you look carefully you can see the difference.

It's a consistent problem with the multiple choice exercises. The software automatically recapitalizes some of the options. It's annoying for our course, but it would take a lot of reprogramming to fix. Please read this post about known problems: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/26778885

The word tlhIngan refers to the species or to an individual of that species. To refer to the language, say tlhIngan Hol Klingon language (Hol language).

This works for lots of other things too. To say Klingon ship, say tlhIngan Duj (Duj ship, vessel). And so forth.
