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

Today’s noun is qach. Lowercase Q, A, CH. qach means building, or structure. It’s about as concrete a noun as you can get. Even so, let’s run it through a few practice sentences.

tugh qach wI’elnIS
soon we will need to enter the building

qachvo’ mej HoD mIl’oD
the captain’s sabre bear left from the structure

wa’Hu’ meQbej qachvetlh
that building obviously burned yesterday

Sometime you’re going to wake up from a dream in which you were speaking Klingon. And as you do, your first thought will be to doubt that the Klingon in your dream was real, that it was just your imagination pretending to speak Klingon but it was all nonsense. Don’t be deceived, your imagination is smart enough to use the real thing. 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.”
