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

Today’s noun is Qe’. Capital Q, E, Apostrophe. Qe’ means restaurant. We’ve been talking about eating and meals and waiters for months now, so this word is long overdue.

Qe’vam jabwI’pu’ vIvoqbe’
I don’t trust that restaurant’s waiters

Qe’ wI’elpa’ Heghbe’ romuluSngan
before we entered the restaurant, the Romulan hadn’t died

not Qe’Daq mughato’ Datu’
You never find a mugato in the restaurant

Some people make a point of practicing Klingon in lots of different places: in front of the mirror in the morning while brushing their teeth, in the car on the way to work, at restaurants, at parties, in the bathroom, in any and every part of their day they can think of. Language isn’t just something you use in one place at one time; it’s everywhere and everywhen. Get used to that with Klingon too. 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
