Well, the book arrived.  So far I have only briefly reviewed the
phonology and verb conjugation, but this small sampling is enough to
convince me that Georgian is the N in ANADEW.  Who knew, all this
time, that every time we said "a natlang already does even worse", we
were talking about the same natlang?

Phonemic glottalizations, weird harmonic stop clusters,  oddly
inconsistent placement of affixes (prefix, postfix, and combinations
in the same category), inclusion of both subject and object in a
single morpheme...

it seems like Dr. Okrand could have saved some effort by just having
the Klingons speak Georgian. :)
