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

Today we’re going to begin something different. I’ve asked my friend QIb to help out, and together we’re going to teach you some supplemental vocabulary by means of a simple conversation. We’ll start out today with three new nouns and three new verbs.

The nouns are:

DIr / skin

Qel / doctor

Quch / forehead

The verbs are:

Doy’ / be tired

pIv / be healthy

rop /be sick or be ill

QIb: bIpIv’a’ / are you healthy?

’angghal: HISlaH jIDoy’ neH / yes, I’m just tired

QIb: tuj QuchlIj ’ej bIr DIrlIj / your forehead is hot and your skin is cold

’angghal: toH, chaq jIropchoH / well, perhaps I’m getting sick

QIb: ’ej chaq Qel DaSuchnIS / and perhaps you need to visit a doctor


And there you have it. Six new vocabulary items, and a short practice conversation showing you how to use them. Find a friend and run this conversation back and forth. Try both sides of it, and then try making a few variations of your own. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.

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

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

— Jay Lake, Campbell Award winner

“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.”
