The Final Reflection
The book The Final Reflection
is a Science Fiction novel by John M. Ford
of the year 1984
. It contains many Klingon words, which however do not fit in the Okrandian tlhIngan Hol. To prevent confusion, the language in this book is therefore inofficially called Klingonaase
During the translation of the play A Klingon Christmas Carol
Marc Okrand has translated the expression "final reflection". For this, he used the word tonSaw'
, which is a fighting technique, (or a maneuver in a game) and the word for final Qav
to get: tonSaw' Qav
= "final fighting technique". If reflection in the sense of an "image in a mirror" is intended, one should add the word for "mirror": neSlo' tonSaw' Qav
If this is related to the title of book is not clearly stated, but obvious.
