But we determined that the users of the Klingon language normally
write it with Latin letters. Were Okrand's dictionary to be reprinted
in Klingon characters and were people to actually use them, Klingon
might be considered to be an actual script used for Klingon. But
currently, the evidence is that it is just a cypher for Latin.
