Klingon For The Galactic Traveler

klingon poster I wonder whether they say “jimmies” or “sprinkles”. It is not quite clear whether this event is open to the public — on the other hand, this flyer was on a telephone pole on a public street. I can’t believe a devoted fan would be turned away. Qapla’

The Department of Cognitive, Linguistic and Psychological Sciences presents a lecture by Marc Okrand titled “What is Klingon?”. Okrand is known as the father of Klingon. He invented the language for the Star Trek film series but it has now acquired a life of its own. He will be speaking on the linguistics, history, and culture of this intergalactic tongue. His lecture will be followed by a screening of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991).

[Additional Note: It is indeed open to the public. Thank you commenter.]

7:30pm, Thursday, April 21, Brown University, Barus & Holley, Room 166, 182 Hope Street, (just north of George Street)
