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

Starting a fresh week can be difficult, especially with a podcast that goes live each day at dawn. Seriously, most of us would rather be sleeping when this airs. Which is as good a segue as I’m likely to get for today’s verb. It’s Qong. Capital Q, O, NG. Qong means sleep. Let’s try some sleepy examples, shall we?

not Qong SuvwI’
a warrior never sleeps

maQonglaHpa’ HoD wIghomnIS
before we can sleep, we need to meet the captain

bIQonglI’chugh vaj wej bIHeghbe’
if you are sleeping, then you haven’t died yet

You may find it helpful to study Klingon right before you go to sleep. There’s something to be said for letting your unconscious mind process and master vocabulary. Of course if you do, you might meet Kahless in your dreams, or you may simply 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
