The Klingon Language Institute (abbreviated KLI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study of the Klingon language, from a scholarly and linguistic point of view. It was founded in 1992 by its director Lawrence M. Schoen. Although there are multiple sorts of "Klingon language" (see Klingonese and Paramount Hol), the main focus lies on the tlhIngan Hol created by Marc Okrand in 1984.

Membership Card

Membership ID
In the first years of the KLI's existence, all members received a membership card. It had no function, except for proud members to show they are a member. The membership card has the KLI logo on the left side, and its name (tlhIngan Hol yejHaD) in Klingon letters on the upper right corner. The first digit of the membership number shows a letter indicating the year of joining the KLI. It starts with A for the KLI's first year, 1992. (1) For example, people joining the KLI in 2000 would get the letter I.

The card itself is 89 x 51 mm (3½" x 2") large, but including the laminated border it measures 95 x 57 mm.
