Hello, and welcome. You’re listening to DaHjaj Hol, your daily dose of Klingon language. I’m your host, Lawrence Schoen.

Continuing our Spring theme today, I want to talk about wind. In Klingon, that noun is SuS. Capital S, U, Capital S. SuS. Let’s use it in some sentences:

bItlhuHDI’ SuS vIQoylaH
when you breathe, I can hear the wind

potlhbe’chugh SuS bIbIrlaHbe’
if the wind is not important, you cannot be cold

rut nuH rurlaH SuS
sometimes the wind can resemble a weapon

tugh qa’lIj tlhutlhchoH SuS
soon the wind will drink your spirit

Klingons don’t spend a lot of time talking about the weather, probably because they know you can’t do much about it. Fortunately, your study of language is a different matter. If you practice, then you will improve. If you continue to improve, then you will excel. By your own force of will, language will open worlds. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.


Today’s podcast is brought to you by the 18th annual summer conference of the Klingon Language Institute (aka the qep’a’ wa’maH chorghDIch) which runs from Sunday morning on August 14th through late evening Tuesday, August 16th. The following day, Wednesday, August 17th, is the official beginning of the 69th annual World Science Fiction Convention, conveniently taking place right there in Reno, Nevada!

Back to the qep’a’: This year, we’ll be splitting the conference into two parts:

Part One will be the usual blend of fellowship, curse warfare, singing, story-telling, and assorted language challenges as we’ve enjoyed for the past seventeen years, and will run from Sunday through Monday. We’ll begin in a meeting room at the Hyatt Place Reno-Tahoe Airport Hotel for Sunday and Monday, and on Tuesday morning we’ll move to larger function space over at Reno’s convention center (courtesy of Renovation, the 69th World Science Fiction Convention).

Part Two will begin at noon on Tuesday, and consist of various introductory lessons and explanations intended for newbies, beginners, and visitors dressed in Federation pajamas (or other noncombatants). Klingon grammarians will be on hand to help newcomers (not to be confused with linguistic “fresh meat!”) learn the basics of Klingon and use it to chat, sing, play games, and insult one another.

The file seems to be broken. Its only 8 seconds long.

Huh. Not sure what the glitch is, and I can’t look into it from my current location. My apologies, but this will have to keep until this afternoon when I can return to HQ and root out the cause.

HIvqa’ veqlargh.

I seem to have the same issue with the audio track. Must have blown away, lol
