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

And so you’ve made it through to another Friday. To celebrate, I’m going to share a noun with you from Marc Okrand’s Klingon for the Galactic Traveler. It’s luH. L, U, Capital H. luH means intestine. Yes, I said intestine. Let’s try it in some sample sentences:

qaghmey rur luHDu’
intestines resemble serpent worms

luH yab ghap Sopta’ mughato’lIj
your mugato ate either an intestine or a brain

‘oy’taHmo’ luHDu’maj mabeplI’
because our intestines continue to be sore, we are complaining

You can imagine lots of ways to use this new word, can you not? It just requires a bit of imagination, and a bit of fun. Remember that your goal isn’t always to make sense, but rather to compose well-formed utterances in Klingon. Mastery of grammar will help you to 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.
