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

Something simple and easy today. An ordinary noun, descriptive yet all too commonplace. Today’s word is qoH. Lowercase Q, O, Capital H. qoH means fool. Let’s try it out:

qoH rur romuluSngan
the Romulan resembles the fool

ngIjqa’DI’ qoH maHagh
when the fool gets rowdy again, we laugh

rut chatlh tlhuHlaH qoH
sometimes the fool can breathe soup

bIrchoHchugh qoH ‘Iw tujnISchoH SuvwI’ ‘Iw
if a fool’s blood turns cold, a warrior’s blood must become hot

I’m giving you this word today because we all know someone who at one time or another has played the fool. You might want to think about this person, now, as you practice, and see how many things you can say about your particular fool in Klingon. Use this new language to open familiar worlds and maybe you’ll gain some new insights to them. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
