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

Our noun today is one that every student of Klingon should know. It’s mu’ghom. M, U, Apostrophe, GH, O, M. mu’ghom means dictionary. Considering that acquiring a copy of the Klingon Dictionary is probably the first thing you did, it’s a wonder I haven’t given you this word before now.

mu’ghomwIj Datlhap’a’
did you take my dictionary?

mu’ghomDaq vItu’laHbe’
I cannot find it in the dictionary

mughato’vaD potlhbe’ mu’ghom
a dictionary is not important for a mugato

You might want to celebrate this new word by taking out your own dictionary and opening it to a random page in the glossary, and treating yourself to a new word, now. I’m not saying you have to, but it would be a special gift, to give yourself a new bit of vocabulary, one which I won’t ever know about. A secret tool to help you open worlds. 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.”
