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

This week’s exclamaition is majQa’. That’s M, A, J, Capital Q, A, Apostrophe. majQa’ means well done! Here are some examples.

yIHmey boHoHta’. majQa’
you guys killed the tribbles. well done!

wIghlIjmo’ maQap. majQa’
because of your genius, we won. well done!

tagha’ Hegh Hoch. majQa’
finally everything is dead. well done!

I’m wondering if you’ll use this exclamation today, or not. Surely someone around you will manage to perform some task or action in a particularly splendid way. When that happens, why not smile and tell them in Klingon that they’ve done a good job. A little vocabulary can go a long way. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.


Today’s podcast is brought to you by Buffalito Destiny by Lawrence M. Schoen.

“The Amazing Conroy is a stage hypnotist who has parlayed an alien buffalo dog — a creature that eats anything and farts oxygen — into a powerful corporation worth billions. An ambitious plan to use these buffalitos to clean up toxic waste sites places him in direct conflict with a radical anti-alien ecoterrorist organization, and before long, Conroy is on the run with only his pet buffalito, Reggie, and his gambler pal, Left-John Mocker, to aid him. As bizarre dreams guide him inexorably towards a mysterious destiny, Conroy deals with prophetic aliens, ancient Mayan ruins, exquisite sandwiches and the temporally-unstable state of Texas. Part crisis-filled road trip, part gonzo race against time, and all tongue-in-cheek humor and charm, this nutty tale may sound strange, but Schoen somehow makes it all come together.”

–Publishers Weekly

“Only Lawrence Schoen could blend the Mayan eschaton, nightclub hypnotism, corporate elitism, radical environmentalism, and good old-fashioned slam-bang adventure fiction.”
