Is there a definitive list somewhere that clearly shows which verbs are transitive and which are intransitive? With some of them, it is really hard to be sure.

Not that I know of. When in doubt, I usually go to www.klingonska.org/canon and search for example sentences.
For example, if I want to know if ghur ("increase") is transitive or intransitive, I search for =*ghur*

Tesseraktik, you deserve a head butt. This is very, very useful. Thank you. If you haven't already checked it out, I recommend an application called boQwI' for the Android operating system. It is quick, easy, efficient and mobile. The entire interface is also in Klingon, which I really like.
