Perhaps You Know: What’s Klingon for “Island”?

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Klingon sign by FalashadI have collected the word for “island” in over 100 languages, including some fictional ones, but Klingon eludes me.

This word does not seem to be in printed or online Klingon dictionaries, and someone translating the “Gilligan’s Island” theme song into Klingon used “world” in place of “island.”
