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

It’s the first Monday of March, and I don’t know about you, but I’m excited. It’s not so much that I’m crazy about Mondays as that today’s verb is Sey, Capital S, E, Y. Sey means be excited. And I think you’ll find these sample sentences really exciting!

macheghDI’ jISeychoH
when we return, I’ll get excited

bISeybe’chugh bIHoHrupbe’
if you’re not excited, you’re not ready to kill

Seybe’meH bIrnIS ‘Iw
in order to not be excited, the blood needs to be cold

Seyqa’ qu’lIj ‘ach mumaS jabwI’
your spirit is excited again, but the waiter prefers me

Because you’re excited about learning Klingon, you’re able to keep listening to these daily podcasts. You’re able to learn new words and grammar every time because you’re having fun. Enjoying yourself is a critical part of any learning, particularly language learning. This isn’t a class that someone is making you take. It’s because you’re choosing to do this for yourself that language opens worlds. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.

The pronunciation of the dipthong {ay} sounds like “eye”, as in “cry.” See TKD p. 16. This really confused me when listening! My brain at first interpreted it as the French word “chez,” and I couldn’t figure out why there was French in my Klingon lesson!

Holtej, I’m not seeing (or hearing) what you are.

Where in this episode is there any occurence of the Klingon dipthong ay?

Lots of uses of ey but no ay. Or am I being totally clueless?
