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

Once again you’ll be receiving some supplemental vocabulary, and then I’ll be joined by my friend QIb and we’ll model the new nouns and verbs in a simple conversation. Here are you new words:

The nouns are:

qama’ / prisoner

DeghwI’ / helmsman

veng / city

The verbs are:

’It / be depressed

noy / be famous or be well known

puj / be weak

QIb: DeghwI’lI’ Daghom’a’ / Did you meet your helmsman?

’angghal: HISlaH vengvo’ mamejpa’ maghom / yes, we met before we left the city.

QIb: reH mu’ItmoH / he always makes me depressed.

’angghal: noymo’ bI’It’a’ / are you depressed because he’s famous?

QIb: ghobe’. qama’ HoHmo’ noy. / no. he’s famous because he killed a prisoner.

’angghal: Do’ qama’ puj law’ DeghwI’ puj puS / luckily the prisoner was weaker.


That’s all there is to it. Six new vocabulary items, and a short practice conversation illustrating how you might use them. Practice this conversation, first one side, than the other. Try swapping out this noun or that verb and see how it feels to transform it into a completely different conversation. Keep at it until you’re comfortable with every line, and remember, 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.”
