So I sent an email to Muke and he created an account for me.

http://www.frathwiki.com/Klingon/lexicon

I've been updating the vocabulary, letter by letter. So far I've done b, ch, and D.

Did you include unverified words? The boQwI' app includes them with notes.

Perhaps you should...just put them in a different section.

Wow! I never knew they added (at last!) a word for 'sun'. So long was I using words like pemHov or 'Hov'a' . I remember talking with Rev. Glen Proechel long-distance by phone, and discussing what that would be in Hol. At the time, he had recently come back to US:MN from Kamchatka Peninsula.

Great fellow linguist and Klingonist, sorely missed.

https://www.kli.org/about-klingon/new-k ... ords/date/

Marc Okrand has recently created a new Klingon word: tu'mI', meaning "sock".

If you reverse the syllables, tu'mI' sounds like "me too". Am I correct in thinking this is a pun on the term "sock puppet"?

Do you mean “Did M Okrand intend this as a pun?”? If so: IDK 😐
Do you mean “Are we likely to henceforth regard this as (such) a pun?”? If so: obviously 🙄

Klingon is full of puns:

Considering how easy and intutive the "tu'mi' = me too = sock puppet = sock" connection seems, I doubt this is a coincidence in a language filled with puns.

The new word lIvqa'nan sounds like "leave Canaan". What do you suppose the given meaning, "doorframe [something constructed to hold a door or gate, whether the door/gate is there or not]", has to do with it?

Klingon now has words for "billion" (a homage to a certain astronomer, no less!), "to vote", "hypothesis", "to consider/regard", "to exploit", "physics", "to be hot/spicy", "to be savory", "etc.", "wormhole", "coincidence", "priest", "recipe", "genealogy", "theory", "glue", "rhyme", "rubber", "coconut", "salt", "hormone", "dust", "ashes", "nest", "fiction", "Afghanistan", "melody", and "breast" -- among others!

Why “coconut”? Is it a loanword, or a neologism? Any coconut anywhere off Earth has to be a transplant or import or descendant of such!

Very nice. Will you be adding them to the Frathwiki Klingon lexicon?

Did you click on the page he linked to? It states clearly: "[This is a borrowing, not a native Klingon word.]"

I clicked on it, but I found it impossible to look up anything on it.
So I never saw that sentence.

Actually, Eldin, I was hoping people would read all the recent words to see the marvel of the whole list for themselves (including many words I didn't mention above). The list is mostly is alphabetical order by Klingon word. One of the words, qo'qo, is coconut; if you look at it, you can tell it's borrowed.

I thought it might be in alphabetical order by tlhIngan’s alphabet.
I don’t have that memorised and couldn’t see from the page how to find it out*, and of course since I would be looking up “coconut” to find “qo’qo”, I wouldn’t have known what to look up even if I knew tlhIngan’s alphabetical order.
(*I see the alphabetical order for tlhIngan now. But I still wouldn’t have known to look under q for coconut.)

I had no trouble finding Saghan because I knew the tlhIngan word would be derived from Carl Sagan’s surname.

Is there a way to use that site as a Klingon-to-English -and- English-to-Klingon “dictionary”?

I imagine the word for “rubber” is borrowed also. [But clearly not from English!]
As is the proper name for “Afghanistan”.

Edit: I used the “in order by date added” feature and looked at all the words new since 1/1/2019.
Kinda impressed!

That's one of my favorite puns! That and tu'mI' for "sock".

Not that I know of.

But check out https://www.frathwiki.com/Klingon/lexicon , which Masako and I have edited. All the Klingon words officially coined to date!

I have just added all the newest words.

The lexicon of Klingon has really blossomed in the past five years. [B)]

EDIT: By my own count, Klingon is up to 3,714 words.
