"The robot saw the Klingons."

Translation:tlhInganpu' legh qoq.

August 8, 2019



Why is lulegh incorrect


Because tlhInganpu' is plural and because qoq is singular. The lu- prefix is only used when the object is third-person singular and the subject is third-person plural. If it is reversed and instead the object is plural and/or the subject is singular, then the standard null-prefix is used.
