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

So this is August. Our first verb of the month is Haw’. Capital H, A, W, Apostrophe. Haw’ means flee. This is not to be confused with the verb HeD, which means retreat. Capital H, E, Capital D. HeD.

mIl’oDmeyvo’ Haw’ mughato’mey
mugatos flee from sabre bears

Dughompa’ oSwI’ bIHaw’nIS
you need to flee before my mother meets you

wa’leS muHoH ‘ach DaHjaj HeDta’ novpu’
tomorrow they will kill me, but today the aliens retreated

lujDI’ romuluSnganpu’ Haw’ ‘ach malujchugh maHeD
when the Romulans lose, they flee, but if we lose, we retreat

What happens when you just decide to learn Klingon as well as you can. No pressure. No artificial goals. No one judging how well you do. Suddenly the language can open up for you, as you take it your own terms, and at your open pace. And when that happens, worlds open too. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.


Today’s podcast is brought to you by Buffalito Destiny by Lawrence M. Schoen.

“The Amazing Conroy is a stage hypnotist who has parlayed an alien buffalo dog — a creature that eats anything and farts oxygen — into a powerful corporation worth billions. An ambitious plan to use these buffalitos to clean up toxic waste sites places him in direct conflict with a radical anti-alien ecoterrorist organization, and before long, Conroy is on the run with only his pet buffalito, Reggie, and his gambler pal, Left-John Mocker, to aid him. As bizarre dreams guide him inexorably towards a mysterious destiny, Conroy deals with prophetic aliens, ancient Mayan ruins, exquisite sandwiches and the temporally-unstable state of Texas. Part crisis-filled road trip, part gonzo race against time, and all tongue-in-cheek humor and charm, this nutty tale may sound strange, but Schoen somehow makes it all come together.”

–Publishers Weekly

“Only Lawrence Schoen could blend the Mayan eschaton, nightclub hypnotism, corporate elitism, radical environmentalism, and good old-fashioned slam-bang adventure fiction.”
