While the object of the verb is the recipient of the action, the indirect object may be considered the beneficiary. In a Klingon sentence, the indirect object precedes the object and is suffixed with the Type 5 noun suffix -vaD for, intended for. The suffix may be attached to either a noun or a pronoun.
