What is this?

The Klingon language - in Klingon: tlhIngan Hol - was invented by Dr. Marc Okrand for Paramount Pictures, originally for the third Star Trek movie in 1984. Rather than making just a code for English, Dr. Okrand decided to make a true language with linguistically interesting features. This wiki summarizes everything that is related to this language: its history, information about grammar and vocabulary, but also lots of background information about Klingon and those who speak it.
