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

For the last Monday of the month, and because many of us are cleaning up after yesterday’s brutal storm, I thought I’d give you an extremely useful verb today. It’s legh. L, E, GH. legh means see. It’s very easy to use:

qaleghlaHchugh choleghlaH’a’
if I can see you, can you see me?

tlhInganpu’ leghDI’ romuluSnganpu’ Haw’bej
when Romulans see Klingons, they undoubtedly flee

loD wIleghbe’mo’ wIghoqlaHbe’
because we don’t see the man, we cannot spy on him

On a deep level, you probably already know many ways you might use this new verb, and likely can construct much more elaborate sentences than I’ve done here with your examples. Perhaps you’ll try your hand at a few, just to show yourself how far you’ve come and what kind of worlds already lay open before 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.”
