Klingon Language - Inspired by the hit
science fiction series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69, The Klingon
Dictionary: English/Klingon, Klingon/English by Marc Okrand
(Pocket Books 1985, 1992) is the official guide to
Klingon words and
phrases including new materials from STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION
and sequel motion pictures.
According to the book's introduction, the dictionary was created
"under the auspices of the Federation Scientific Research Council to
record and analyze the language and culture of the Klingons with
goals of preparing an encyclopedia."
The book is divided into two parts: grammatical sketch and
dictionary proper. Klingonese is a harsh, guttural-tongued language.
