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

Time is racing by. Here we are in September already, and you’re hungry for another visit to Marc Okrand’s Klingon for the Galactic Traveler and a special new word. Today that word is the noun lupwI’. L, U, P, W, Capital I, Apostrophe. lupwI’ means bus, or jitney. If you don’t happen to have a Duj handy, it’s going to be faster than walking.

HIvchugh romuluSnganpu’ lupwI’ wIHublaHbe’
if the Romulans attack, we cannot defend the jitney

lupwI’ ‘elDI’ mIl’oD HoHchoH
as soon as the sabre bear entered the bus, it began killing

jI’oy’mo’ lupwI’vetlh vIwIv
because I’m sore, I chose that bus

When you choose to practice this new word, will you focus on pairing it with various chuvmey, or will you combine it with as many verbs as you know, or will you attempt to use it in conjunction with all the nouns at your disposal? Which method do you imagine you’re likely to choose in your ongoing quest to open new worlds? qo’mey poSmoH Hol.


Today’s podcast is brought to you by Buffalito Contingency by Lawrence M. Schoen.

Conroy has left Earth far behind and taken his hypnosis act beyond Human Space.

It should be show business as usual, except for the energy being the size of a hundred suns that wants to study him, a plot to smuggle liquid gravity, a troupe of alien sex wrestlers, a hypnotized ghost, and Reggie his buffalito stuck in a saurian toilet…

“If you like hilarity along with your mayhem, or perhaps mayhem with your hilarity, then Buffalito Contingency was written with you in mind.”

— Walter Jon Williams, Nebula award-winning author

Buffalito Contingency‘s aliens were so alien I reveled in my humanity, and the humans were so human I resolved to revel in the moment. But the book was so entertaining that humanity and the moment took a walk while I finished a really good read.”

— Howard Tayler, Hugo-nominated cartoonist & author
