"The man understands the woman."
Translation:be' yaj loD.
Why are the subject and object in Klingon reversed from English (and German)? Because that's how Klingon works. Klingons state who the action is done to before the verb and state who is doing it after the verb. Even on the planet Earth that order exists, but it is very rare. It takes a lot of practice to get your brain used to that order, but for experienced speakers, that order eventually seems to feel very natural.
