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

Our suffix today is the remaining Type 1 verb suffix. It’s –chuq. CH, U, Lowercase Q. –chuq translates as each other or one another, and it has two special restrictions applied to it. First, it always takes a prefix from the “no object” type, and second, its subject must always be plural. Work through the following examples and you should see why both these rules make sense.

not maHoHchuq
we will never kill each other

reH SuqIpchuq
you guys always hit one another

leghchuqchugh ghaytan qay’
if they see each other it will likely be a problem

If you practice every day, even just a little bit, even if all you do is listen to the few minutes of this podcast, then you will learn Klingon. The sounds of the language will get into your head. The rules will start to make sense. The vocabulary that you’ve heard over and over will come into your mind when you call for it. So even if all you can make is the most minimal of efforts, it will make a difference. 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.”
