Two letter words

Most Klingon words consist of one syllable with three letters, based on the structure CVC, consonant-vowel-consonant. (For details and exceptions, see phonology). Very few words consist of only two letters. Since a word can never start with a vowel, all of these two letter words end with a vowel. Prefixes are not listed here, since they all have only two letters.
