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

Welcome to the last Saturday of the month, and our final Proverb Day this September. As we’ve seen before, this week’s proverb’s translation into English is far from literal. Take your time working through the pieces, and I’m confident you’ll see how pajama-wearing Federation scholars came up with it.

And now, here’s the proverb:

wej Heghchugh vay’, SuvtaH SuvwI’
a warrior fights to the death


Personally, I think the grammar is much more interesting in the original Klingon. But then, it usually is. 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
