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

Right now, I’m in Toronto, Canada, waking up to attend a convention here, and tonight I expect to be partying with some local Klingon fans. But through the magic of podcasting I’m nonetheless able to be here with you to open up Marc Okrand’s epic book, Klingon for the Galactic Traveler, and give you a new verb.

That verb is jom. J, O, M. jom means install and is used when talking about performing this action upon a device (as opposed to installing someone in office). As always, here are a few practice sentences to make it clear to you.

De’wI’vam vIjomlaHbe’
I cannot install this computer

maHeghchoH chIjwI’ DajomHa’chugh
If you misinstall the navigation device, we’re going to die

qoq majommeH nger vIghaj ’ach loQ maw’
I have a theory for us installing the robot, but it’s slightly crazy


How would it feel to just start speaking and have the words come out in Klingon? You’re thinking about it right now, aren’t you? You can imagine it, but soon just imagining isn’t going to be enough. Soon you’ll need to experience the real thing. If you want to be ready for that, you’d better step up your practice. 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
