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

Another week and another verb. Today’s selection is mon. M, O, N. mon means smile. A handy way to remember this verb is to think of that famous painting of Leonardo’s and ask the question does she smile? which in Klingon would be mon’a’.

monchugh HoD vaj Heghbe’
if the captain is smiling then he isn’t dead

choHoHpa’ bImonnIS
before you kill me, you need to smile

DujwIj che’elta’DI’ jImonlaHbe’
when y’all entered my ship I couldn’t smile.

I could tell you that practicing Klingon with a smile on your face will make the experience much more interesting, but I would rather let you discover this for yourself. So give it a try today. Walk up to someone, and with a big smile start speaking to them in Klingon. Tell them anything you like. Use any words you know or want to practice. Or simply explain to them that language opens 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
