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

You’ve been waiting. I know it, you know it, I know you know it, and you know that I know you know it. So. Let’s not wait any longer: Here is this week’s Proverb!

leghlaHchu’be’chugh mIn lo’laHbe’ taj jej
a sharp knife is nothing without a sharp eye

Pay close attention to the translation here today. This proverb may seem prettier, more elegant in English than in Klingon, but note that it is less useful too. The English is general and vague, but the Klingon version really spells things out for you. There probably ought to be a proverb about that, actually, but we’ll stick with our trusty standard:

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
