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

You know, it’s been too long since we had a good noun suffix, so let’s correct that lack with today’s choice. It’s our last remaining Type 3 noun suffix, -Hey. Capital H, E, Y. Like the other Type 3 noun suffixes, –Hey tells us something about the authenticity of the noun it modifies. In this case, it indicates that the speaker believes the noun is apparently what it seems to be, but there’s some question as to the certainty or conviction. Here are some examples:

cha’Hu’ jaghHey vIHoH
the day before yesterday, I killed an apparent enemy

DapHey rur mu’meylIj
your words resemble apparent nonsense

yoHnIS SuvwI’Hey
an apparent warrior needs to be brave

You are able to enjoy speaking Klingon. It really can be as simple as that. Not everyone will be able to say that, but if you couldn’t you wouldn’t still be here listening to these podcasts. You can take pleasure in studying this language and expanding your linguistic horizons with it. Revel in that, it’s really pretty cool. 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.”
