Lieven –

Let's see...

"Wiki" in English is pronounced with stress on the first syllable, which has the same vowel sound as "with" or "which" or "hit" – Klingon {I} – and the second syllable is the same as English "key." So it rhymes with "Mickey" or "picky." If "Klingonized," I think it would be {wI'qIy}. It's not a Klingon word, but Klingons would use the Federation Standard word (probably pronounced in the Klingon way) for this Federation thing. I don't know if Klingons have a similar sort of thing. I'll have to see what Maltz has to say. (It's okay to forward this information – the important part is that it's not a Klingon word, but the Klingon pronunciation [and spelling] of a Federation Standard word that Klingons use from time to time. Same as {'e'levan}. Or you can wait and we can just include it in the qepHom wish list.)
