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

Today’s verb is a classic. So much so, I’m stunned we haven’t gotten to it before now. It’s laD. L, A, Capital D. laD means read. A few obvious examples will lock this in for you:

laDlaHbe’ qoH neH
only a fool cannot read

paq laDDI’ chom HoH HoD
as soon as he read the book, the captain killed the bartender

mu’mey legh mughato’wIj ‘ach laDlaHbe’
my mugato sees the words, but he cannot read

You may or may not notice, day by day, that you’re fluency in Klingon is improving. But that’s fine. Your awareness of your increasing ability isn’t what’s responsible for the improvement. Just continue along as you have been, and the language will open worlds for you. 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
