Review: The Klingon Dictionary

User Review  - Goodreads

This is not the most academically superior book I've ever read, but it does what it says on the tin. It's a dictionary with basic Klingon words, and a little overview of the grammar and general morphology etc. This is a great book for beginners, even though it was published in 1992.
