Intransitive

When a verb is intransitive it means that it cannot have an object. All verbs describing quality in klingon - usually translated as adjective - are intransitive.

The suffix -moH can make intransitive verbs to transitive ones.

Examples

  • jaH (to go) is an intransitive verb: It is not possible to "go someone".
  • Qong (to sleep) is an intransitive verb: It is not possible to "sleep someone".
