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

Let’s walk you through another batch of new nouns and verbs so you can follow today’s short coversation between me and my friend QIb.

The nouns are:

pegh / secret

qab / face

qoq / robot

The verbs are:

jon / capture

lop / celebrate

lugh /be right or be correct

QIb: DujDaq qoq Datu’’a’ / Did you find the robot on the ship?

’angghal: HISlaH ’ej bIlughmo’ malopnIS / yes, and because you were right we need to celebrate

QIb: tugh bIloplaH ’ach DajonDI’ monlI’’a’ / soon you can celebrate, but was it smiling when you captured it

’angghal: qoq qab vIleghbe’ / I did not see the robot’s face

QIb: peghmey ghaj monbogh qoq / smiling robots have secrets

’angghal: monchugh vay’ Davoqbe’ / you don’t trust anyone who smiles


And that’s our dialogue for the week. Six new words and a healthy warning not to trust smiling robots. Seriously, you need to ask yourself, why are they smiling? When you think you know the answer, or at least an answer, post it to my blog. In Klingon, of course. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.

Sweet Potato Pie
Today’s podcast is brought to you by Sweet Potato Pie, a collection of wonder and delight by Lawrence M. Schoen.

“Sweet Potato Pie” [is] weird and wonderful and will dig into you more with its strangeness than with its deep meaning, but as most stories don’t get a hold at all, that’s just fine.

— Matthew M. Foster, Tangent

Lawrence Schoen’s “The Amulet of Winter” is at the top level a quite entertaining story.

— Rich Horton, Fantasy Magazine

“The Sky’s the Limit” is the perfect mixture of humor and suspense.

— Sherwood Smith, author of the Inda series
