Te absolvimus, Andrey. And welcome.

Please do! Always keen for new blood...

It's generally what I do- I tend to trust me ear to come up with something
that "sounds" right. A computer generator can come up with "words" which
match the phonological constraints of your language, but they won't be
related to each other in any way- they would have no history- and just be
arbitrary ciphers. This is one of the most unattractive things about
Klingon for me.

We all are!
