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

Today we have the second of our guest interviews with Klingon speakers, recorded live during last month’s qep’a’ wa’maH chorghDIch, the 18th annual Klingon Language Conference.

* * *

LS: We’re here at the qep’a’ with Eric Andeen, also know as pagh, who in a rare gesture of good will is going to speak in English just for you, something he hasn’t been doing all day, much to my annoyance. And Eric is going to share with us his favorite word in Klingon. Eric, what would that be?

EA: My favorite word in Klingon is ghew which means bug. And I like it for the sound of it; it’s just a wonderfully alien-sounding word.

LS: Would you spell that please.

EA: ghew is spelled GH, E, W.

LS: And would you mind using that in a sentence please?


ghIlab ghew tIbuSHa’
ignore the glob flies

LS: Sage advice indeed. Thank you very much, Eric.

That’s all from me today, except to say, qo’mey poSmoH Hol. Language opens worlds.


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
