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

We’ve reached the end of the work week, and so as is our custom we turn onces more to the pages of Marc Okrand’s Klingon for the Galactic Traveler for a special bit of vocabulary. Today’s selection is the verb ngeQ. NG, E, Capital Q. ngeQ means collide with or bump into or run into. Here are some examples of how you might use it.

romuluSngan Duj ngeQ HoD Duj
the captain’s ship collided with the Romulan ship

jIchechmo’ chom vIngeQpu’
because I was drunk, I ran into the bartender

novvam DangeQ ‘ej nuHDaj Datlhap
you bumped into that alien and took his weapon

You could treat these words you get on Fridays as a serious challenge. Sure, most of them are obscure, and many show up only infrequently in most conversations, if at all. But doesn’t that just make the contest more interesting? More a challenge? Youd didn’t take up the study of Klingon because you wanted something easy. No, you’re here to open worlds! 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.”
