Nothing at all! They have a lot to do with Klingon vocabulary, however. For instance, {bang} means "lover", {tlhaQ} (which sounds a lot like "clock" under the assumption that {tlhIngan} sounds like "Klingon") means "chronometer", {tIq} means "heart" ("ticker"), {HIq} means "liquor" ("Hic!"), {'Iw} means "blood" ("Ewww!"), and on and on and on.
