I bought this for a bit of a laugh. I always wanted to dress up as a Klingon, enter a busy bar on a Saturday night and ask the barman for a prune juice, then headbutt the first bloke who gave me a funny look whilst telling him (in Klingon of course) that his mother has a smooth forehead.
Now, as soon as I get the costume I can, and a whole lot more. It's not easy though. Don't expect to read from cover to cover and be able to speak Klingon like Worf and Martok though. That just ain't gonna happen...

You know you are a Star Trek fan when:
1) You wear your own uniform.
2) You make your own Jumja Sticks.
3) You learn to speak Klingon.
The first two are pretty easy: All it takes is some courage and a butter/sugar combination.
The third point is a little more tricky. Klingon (or Klingonese) is an actual language developed by some cunning language experts at various American Universities combined with the content of the first six Star Trek movies and early TNG episodes.
The next logical thing to do with the Klingon language was to make it available for Star Trek fans and so Mark Ocrand (who is now seen to be one of the founding fathers of the Klingon language) put together a Klingon Dictionary and published it with Pocket Books.
The book itself is quite old now and has sections dedicated to 'common phrases' and an actual dictionary section. The main body of the book however, actually teaches you how to pronounce tricky Klingon words and deals with things like Verbs, Nouns and even numbers.
The Dictionary is amazingly well put together. It is to all intents are purposes, the foundation to an actual, real life language.
Language is important. It is one of the aspects that makes a culture unique and the Klingon language is a wonderful example of how Star Trek can build its worlds effectively. (It's just a shame that they don't stick to it properly.)
The Klingon language used to be a very important part of Star Trek fan culture and the Klingon Dictionary used to sell by the ton. However, these days not many fans are bold enough to go all the way and learn the Klingon language. So if you are a Star Trek fan, why not go all the way and buy the Klingon Dictionary and learn the language of one of the most diverse alien cultures of the Star Trek Galaxy?

This is a standard paperback. Written almost like a Teach Yourself book and has a good dictionary section. Not being from Kronos I am not sure how accurate it is but it is a fun item for Star Trek fans and fine at the money.

as much a pronunciation and grammar guide as a dictionary. i wouldn't recommend it as the sole resource for learning klingon, or as 'light' reading, but as a reference guide, including simple terran pronunciations of common phrases, it's good.

Some people might say that star trek is dead, but thanks to the internet we can still have treasures like this.

It is not a book that you can read cover to cover and know how to speak Klingon, instead you pick up little bits now and then and make choking noises as you walk round your house.

It might be something that never read properly, but never the less, its a nice piece in every collection.

I was a bit disappointed initially that it didn't have some of the phrases I was more familiar with nut then realised that a lot of that was later Next Gen and DS9 canon. Good book, well composed, not a deep read, something that you dip in and out of as you need to.

I have always been interested in different languages and when I found that I too could learn the language of one of the most well-known alien races in the Alpha Quadrant I had to buy.

This is so much more than a dictionary providing a lot of support with grammar and pronunciation, areas that are rather more complex than originally anticipated. I would recommend that the dictionary is used in conjunction with a good friend as no-one can learn a language from reading a book alone.
