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

Today our exploration of Klingon leftovers veers into new territory, as we begin to explore exclamations. We start with wejpuH. W, E, J, P, U, Capital H. wejpuH means charming, but is always used in an ironic sense. No one is ever charmed when they say wejpuH.

did your mugato eat my lunch?

your sister prefers my friend

Soch romuluSnganpu’ vIHoHnIS ‘ej bemwIj vIlo’ neH

I need to kill seven Romulans and I can only use the sole of my foot

One might, you know, choose to be ironic one day, in every sentence you craft. What do you imagine that would feel like? For just a day to inhabit a world that’s just oh so charming. Language can do that for you, you know. 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.”
