Front Cover
"From Elvish To Klingon" is the title of a book by Michael Adams, published 2011. It is about constructed languages, "examining their origins, purpose, and usage." (1). This work is one of the few literature books describing the Klingon language and is therefore frequently quoted (although it is quoting other works itself).

Klingon language

Klingon is described in chapter 5 of the book, entitled "Wild and Whirling Words: The invention and Use of Klingon". The named authors are Marc Okrand, Michael Adams, Judith Hendriks-Hermans, and Sjaak Kroon. This chapter starts on page 111 and goes to 134, hence containing 23 pages. There is a 4-page appendix about Klingon named "Advanced Klingon" talking about and showing part of Klingon Hamlet.

The chapter is subdivided in the following paragraphs:
  • 111 (not titled introduction)
  • 112 "Origins"
  • 119 "Stay tuned for further developments"
  • 121 "Klingon vocab"
  • 122 "Codifying Klingon"
  • 123 "New demands for (and on) Klingon"
  • 124 "Discourse, dialects, and writing"
  • 127 "Who speaks Klingon?"
  • 131 "A Klingon speech community: myth or reality?"
