ALERT! BETA VERSION - Editing is allowed, but please read THIS PAGE first.

Dictionary part of the Klingon Language Wiki

This section is intended to be a dictionary part explaning the meanings of a word. It is not to be used as a lookup tool, it's more a definitions archive to explain the true meaning of a word, especially when it's unclearly defined in its first place.


This section of the project is still in testing mode:
  • Feel free to test anything you like; report any bugs and also comments right here on this page, just below.
  • Due to technical reasons, please avoid using page names starting with lower case letters (like ghargh) and names with apostrophes (like 'ol and Su'nIm). You can create such pages, but remember that they may need to be renamed later, which means extra work.
    (we are working on solving this)

Editors guide

What this IS:

  • Each page shall explain the usage of a word. Especially if the word is not clearly defined, one can add canon additions and explanations.

What this is NOT:

  • This is NOT intended to be a dictionary, that's why there is no English to Klingon section intended.

Basic rules

  • Page names are always the Klingon word, like tlhIngan
  • Do not make pages for phrases. This is only a WORD list. Even tlhIngan Hol is not intended to be here, as it's made of two words: tlhIngan and Hol. You may argue that this would make the term missing, but as said before, this work is not intended as a complete book of phrases, only a clarification for each KLINGON WORD.
    Also, the phrase ro'qegh 'Iwchab is not added as an entry, only its INDIVIDUAL WORDS ro'qegh and 'Iwchab; and this even though the latter is a compound noun.
  • In addition to the above statement, combined words may be added in the additional information, like the term tlhIngan Hol belongs to the entry tlhIngan, but also to Hol.
  • Always separate clear canon definitions from personal interpretations or suggestions.
  • Always add the canon source as detailed as possible. "TKD p. 172" is better than "TKD" only.
  • When referencing TKD or KGT, use the K-E part of the dictionary.
  • Keep information and definitions as short as possible. If Okrand explains a word with a long text, that would belong into the main section.

Technical notes

In the main wiki, DataForms are only secondary parts only displaying other languages of a page. In this definitions part of the wiki, EVERYTHING is written only in the DataForms, so one needs to know a few things about these.

Using DataForms

  • for a word that has 1 definition, use Word_1_DefinitionForm
  • for a word that has 2 definitions, use Word_2_DefinitionsForm
  • for a word that has 3 definitions, use Word_3_DefinitionsForm

Technical restrictions

  • You cannot use quotes, as in "this". If needed, they must be escaped: \"this\"
  • Wiki markup can be used, but may not work as the intitial or final symbol in the box. This can be avoided by adding a space before and after it, or by using HTML-markup.

Permitted Macros

For the above mentoned technical restrictions, it is possible that some macros do not function, since they contain quotes that may ruin the entire page. The following macros will work properly in this section of the wiki:
  • sources: %TKD%, %KGT%, %TKW%, %PK%, %CK%
  • movies: %ST1%, %ST2% etc.
  • TV shows: %TNG%, %DSN% etc.
  • break: %BR%
