I love you in Klingon


There's no perfect way to answer this. There's not acually a Klingon word for "love." The closest phrase that matches Klingon culture would be "I honor you." In the Klingon dictionary, the word for honor is only listed as a noun, not as a verb. However, its used as a verb in the TNG episode "The Bonding" when Worf uses the prase SoS jIH batlh SoH (Mother, I honor you). According to the Klingon dictionary this isn't really the proper way to say that, but running with it for simplicity's sake, if we can assume the word for honor (batlh) can be used as a verb, the correct way to say "I honor you" would be "qabatlh." The word "batlh" meaning honor, and the prefix "qa-" denoting that its "I" that's honoring "You." Hope that helps!


According to DS9 "Looking for Par'Mach in all the wrong places", Par'Mach is supposed to be a klingon word for love, with more aggressive overtones. 98.204.75.187 12:58, February 10, 2012 (UTC)
