How to Speak Klingon Sound Book

Do you know a child or teenager who loves science fiction, and knows their Star Trek from their Star Wars? Then the How to Speak Klingon Sound Book from the novelty gift range at Gifts Australia could be just the thing for a fun birthday, Christmas (or any other occasion) present. Filled with “essential phrases for the intergalactic traveller”, this introduction to the culture and behaviours of the proud warrior race will hopefully prevent the need for one on one combat when they next meet a party of Klingons!

As anyone who has ever watched the Star Trek TV series or films knows, Klingons are the members of the proud warrior race of aliens with the scary appearance and the impossibly difficult language. Probably most well-known of all the Klingons is Lieutenant Commander Worf, who served on board the Starship Enterprise, and later also appeared in the Deep Space Nine series. 

Written by Ben Grossblatt, a writer, editor and science fiction fan who has also been involved in inventing the Sith language, and with illustrations by Alex Fine, the twenty-four-page board book How to Speak Klingon features a built-in sound module with ten unique sounds. In How to Speak Klingon, readers will learn many useful things such as how to compliment a Klingon (“You bludgeon divinely!”) or how to insult him (“Your mother has a smooth forehead”).  Phrases for how to deal with annoying customs officials (“Passport? My FIST is my passport!”) or how to buy tickets for the latest Klingon play (“Two for Romulan and Juliet”) are also provided.

Klingon, more than any artificial language, has captured the imagination and has grown and been added to over the years, and it has now taken on a life of its own and is practiced by many people all over the world. There are officially more than 3000 words in the Klingon language. Did you know, that:


➢    There is a Klingon Language parody of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up”
➢    Hamlet has been fully translated and performed in Klingon
➢    A linguist once tried to bring up his son with Klingon as his native language
➢    Bing has added Klingon to its language translator feature
➢    There is a virtual Klingon Language Institute that lists many helpful everyday phrases on its website!

So, if you have a proud little warrior in your life, look no further and make their day with this fun novelty gift from Gifts Australia. By the way, just a reminder that Klingon for “Happy Birthday” is “qoSlij Datlvjaj” – you probably knew that already, but we thought it might be worth mentioning just in case.

Don’t forget to check out the other great Novelty Gifts available on Gifts Australia, you’ll be surprised at how many fun and affordable gifts you can find for the whole family!
