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

I hope you’re well rested from your weekend, because now it’s time to get to work. And what better way, than with a new verb? Today’s word is SIgh. Capital S, Capital I, GH. SIgh means influence. Let’s try it out with some sample sentences:

you don’t need to influence me

chaq jabwI’ DaSIgh ‘ach chom DaSIghlaHbe’
perhaps you’ll influence the waiter, but you cannot influence the bartender

ghaytan pIvoqbe’chugh juSIghbe’
likely, if we don’t trust you, you won’t influence us

rambe’ meqmeylIj ‘ach nuSIghbe’
your reasons are not trivial, but they don’t influence us

If you believe what I tell you, I can shape your behavior. It doesn’t really matter whether or not what I tell you is true, the effect is the same. So believe me when I tell you that mastering Klingon will bring you wealth and fame, creativity and success, the respect and admiration of all those around you. Believe me, practice this new word, and you too will be able to use language to open new worlds. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
