In 1997, Marc Okrand made this post on the MSN Expert Forum, as an explanation of the use of qajatlh. This grammar is called the prefix trick:

Since the object of jatlh is that which is spoken, and since "you" or "I" or "we" cannot be spoken (and therefore cannot be the object of the verb), if the verb is used with a pronominal prefix indicating a first- or second-person object, that first or second person is the indirect object.
