G as in gobble. Just relax the tongue when saying it. Have the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth mid way when saying it
Sounds like Bach the composer. It is articulated with a coarse, strong rasp. The vocal cords do not vibrant when you say h
Ng as in furlong;never as in English engulf. The g is never pronounced as a separate sound. This sound never occurs at the beginning of an English word, but it does come at the beginning of a number of Klingon words. English-speakers may practice this sound at the beginning of a word by saying English dang it! Then saying it again without the da.
P as in the English Parallax or opprobrium. It is always articulated with a strong puff or pop. Never laxly
q as in English k in kumquat, but not quite that. The tongue position for the English k is like that for Klingon gh and H. To produce Klingon q, the main body of the tongue touched the roof of the mouth at a point farther back than it does for gh or H. Indeed, the tongue reaches for or touches the uvula. (The fleshy blob that dangles down from the back of the roof of the mouth), So articulating q approximates the sound of choking. The sound is usually accompanied by a slight puff of air.
