Spelling Edit

Where does the spelling of this word come from? Klingon for the Galactic Traveler mentions a slender-bladed knife called a ghonDoq, and though that's an apocryphal source, I'm wondering if perhaps somebody misread this as qhonDoq. --Tesseraktik (talk) 23:18, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

I was just going to ask the same question, before I read yours. It really looks like somebody misread g as q, but since the book was published 7 years after the episode, the athor cannot have used it. What may be possible is that the author of the episode used the Klingon dictionary to look for klingon spelling and made something up, and THEN did the misreading? Okrand afterwards corrected the spelling back... Anyway, I chekced the script of the episode and did not find that word. -- Klingonteacher (talk) 14:17, December 13, 2015 (UTC)
