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

While you’re listening to this podcast, waiting to learn what the new verb is this week, I’m off in Reno at the KLI’s annual conference, also known as the qep’a’ wa’maH chorghDIch. I’m surrounded by the hot passion of the Klingon language, and so today’s verb is meQ. M, E, Capital Q. meQ means burn. Let’s use it in some sample sentences:

mumeQ chom nuH
the bartender’s weapon burned me

ghoghlIj vIQoyDI’ meQchoH tIqwIj
when I hear your voice, my heart begins to burn

megh DameQpu’ ‘ej ‘up ‘ach tlherbe’
you burned lunch, and it’s disgusting, but it isn’t lumpy

bemwIj vImeQmo’ jInarghlaHbe’
because I burned the sole of my foot, I cannot escape

If you imagine yourself fluent in Klingon, then you’ll have created a possibility that you can manifest. You’ve invented a future reality, conjured up a world. Now you just have to get there. 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.”
