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

We continue our current string of exclamatory chuvmey today with ‘eH. Apostrophe, E, Capital H. ‘eH means ready! It’s a handy one-word sentence just waiting for you to use.

HoD DaHoHrup’a’

are you ready to kill the captain?

DaH jImejnIS

I need to leave now

be’nallI’ DawIvpa’ yIchechqu’choH

before you choose your wife, become very drunk!

I’m wondering if you’ll use this exclamation today. It would be so easy to slip it in to even an English conversation, and the context would probably make the meaning clear. Imagine that, stealth-Klingon, all around you. Just think of the possibilities… 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.”
