...but the Amazon page is up.

You can buy it next month, I guess.

I don't really count these books I write through work. They're not really mine, but it's still neat.

And, no, I don't speak Klingon. I wrote the book, but the Klingon Language Institute (yes, really) provided translations where needed.

Geez, FootFace, I can't even speak French. Way to make me look like a pile of puke.

Footy, this looks awesome and like too much fun. I guess you didn't voice the audio translation (since you say you don't speak Klingon)?

I can't speak Klingon or French.

I just wrote all the English parts.

I did not. And that part was... interesting.

I am so going to tip the humor/Star Trek buyer (who happens to be the same person) at work to order that!

Heh... "going Romulan"....

Here's an example (in an Azerbaijani word) of that sound (I think): qətl.

Phonetically, it's [tɬ] or maybe [t'ɬ].

If you prowl around forvo.com, I'll bet you could find more.

Actually, I don't know whether [t'ɬ] even makes sense.

Was it that Star Trek book you couldn't resist buying?

It will instantly become her most cherished possession, and you will henceforth be her favorite cousin.

Unless you're talking about the David Sedaris book.

You have a last name!

I am curious, how did you (a non-Klingon speaker) come to be writing this book?

I will tell people to purchase it at once.

Well, most of the book is in English.

And I was the editor on the project, and it was cheaper (!) to write the thing myself.
