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

Once again we turn to the chuvmey for another exclamation. Today’s selection is maj. M, A, J. maj means good! and is used to express satisfaction, as the following examples will show you.

HIqwIj yItlhutlh
drink my ale!


vavlI’ taj wItu’
we found your father’s knife


mIl’oD vISuvmo’ mon HoD
because I fought the saber bear, the captain smiled


People can, you know, learn a new language even when they have no one nearby to speak to. Of course, that doesn’t apply to you. By and large, Klingon speakers tend to have access to all sorts of technology, and even if there isn’t another student of the language living next door to you, you can easily find one available for an internet chat, somewhere in the world. Imagine, speaking to someone in another country who doesn’t know your native language, but with whom you could share a conversation in Klingon. 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
