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

Today’s verb is jej. J, E, J. jej means be sharp. Let’s try it out.

jej’a’ betleHlIj
is your bat’lath sharp?

nuHwIj jej law’ nuHlIj jej puS
my weapon is sharper than your weapon

reH jej SuvwI’ taj
a warrior’s knife is always sharp

I wouldn’t tell you that you need to find ways to practice your Klingon in every day life, because you already know that. The trick is finding the means to do so. If you’re having trouble with vocabulary, maybe you can put sticky-notes around the house with the words you’re trying to learn. Or perhaps you have a friend or co-worker you can speak to each day, even if it’s just a single sentence that you prepare and practice so you can deliver it flawlessly. In this way, bit by bit, you open 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
