Father Teaches his Son Klingon as a First Language

Some parents try to teach their infant children a foreign language, but d'Armond Speers took his son's linguistic education to a whole new level. Speers claims that he spoke to his son only in Klingon for the first three years of the boy's life. Not only did his son start parroting the alien language; Speers' interest in Klingon has also landed him a job. When a dictionary and translation software company called Ultralingua sought to create applications based on a Klingon dictionary, they turned to Speers, who is a software consultant and expert in computational linguistics.
