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

Would you look at that? It’s Friday again, and I just happen to have a copy of Marc Okrand’s Klingon for the Galactic Traveler on hand. Let’s see if I can’t find a new noun for you. Ah, here’s one now. It’s ‘Ib. Apostrophe, Capital I, b. ‘Ib means tub. Can you think of a few sentences that use this word? I bet I can:

not ‘Ibmey lo’ romuluSnganpu’
Romulans never use tubs

‘Ib bIr vImaS
I prefer a cold tub

nuHublaHbe’ veqlargh ‘Ib
the Fek’lhr’s tub cannot defend us

Sooner or later you’ll stop seeing any difference between the special words you get on Friday and the rest of your vocabulary. They’ll all simply blend in together as Klingon, and you’ll use them just like anything else. Yes, even the odd ones that I seem to go out of my way to find. It will happen. Trust me. 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.”
