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

Let’s return to the class of Type 2 verb suffixes that describe the state of the person or thing performing the action of a verb. –qang indicates that person or thing is willing to verb.

yIHmey Sopqang ghungwI’pu’
the hungry are willing to eat tribbles

vIvuvbe’mo’ HoD vItIchqang
because I don’t respect him, I’m willing to insult the captain

qaHoHrupbe’ ‘ach qaHoHqangbej
I’m not ready to kill you, but I’m certainly willing to kill you

You might not have noticed how much more easily you can speak than when you first began. How you’ve moved from being unable to form your own phrases and sentences, to being ready to do so, and finally now willing. If you haven’t noticed, take a moment to look around you. You’re standing in a very different place than you were before. 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.”
