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

Another Wednesday means another exclamation in our current string of chuvmey. Today’s selection is pItlh. P, Capital I, TLH. pItlh means done! You can use this word any time you’ve completed an action or task.

you need to eat your soup

mamejpa’ mughato’ yIHoH

before we leave, kill the mugato

tugh yatlhchoH be’nallI’

soon your wife will become pregnant

You could spend some time today trying out various tasks and actions in Klingon, stating them out loud, and in your mind imagining the criteria for completing them and being able to shout out that you’re done. It may seem daunting at first, but working your vocabulary in novel ways will expand your facility with the language, opening new worlds for you. 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.”
