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

Today’s noun may seem a bit odd for a Klingon language warrior, but I think it’s a useful term to have in your vocabulary, even if you never use it. It’s pung. P, U, NG. pung means mercy. Here are some sample sentences for you to try out.

batlh potlh law’ pung potlh puS
honor is more important than mercy

pung wIv vIngwIpu’ neH
only whiners choose mercy

romuluSngan DujDaq pung tu’laHbe’ SuvwI’na’
a true warrior does not find mercy on a Romulan ship

When you begin to use Klingon a bit every day, then an opportunity will open up for rapid improvement. It’s starts simply, and expands almost without effort. When you see this happening for you, you’ll know that worlds are opening. 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
