I am consistently amazed by how compact Klingon can be compared to English. Except for some cases, of course. (I'm looking at you, ngaQHa'moHwI')

I think experienced speakers would have been disappointed to discover the existence of a more compact word than ngaQHa'moHwI', as we'd all been saying it for years before it was used by Okrand. You'll get used to it.
