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 short and sweet. It’s mach. M, A, CH. mach means be small. You’ll be able to find all kinds of ways to use this word. Here are just a few:

mughato’lIj mach law’ mIl’oDwIj mach puS
your mugato is smaller than my sabre bear

machqu’mo’ taj cha’logh qaHoHnIS
because the knife was very small, I needed to kill you twice

nom narghlaH loD mach
a small man can escape quickly


Before these example sentences you might not have noticed how many ways you can use this new verb, but I suspect you’re beginning to. Language is inherently flexible, and as the possibilities begin to become apparent for one word, you’ll quickly realize you can go off in similar directions with other vocabulary that you already possess. Your command of the language is beginning to expand, and will continue to do so more and more rapidly. 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.”
