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 one that I meant to share with you months and months ago, and yet somehow it just never happened. It’s yaj. Y, A, J. yaj means understand. Fortunately, it’s quite easy to comprehend, as I’m sure the following practice sentences will demonstrate.

can you understand me?

muyaj chom neH
only the bartender understands me

qayajneSchugh vaj tugh Hoch DaHoHnIS
if I understand you, sir, you need to kill everyone

bIvulmo’ pIyajbe’
because you are unconsious, we don’t understand you


Some people understand all the grammatical nuances of a new language very quickly, and some need to work through it by actually using the language. There’s no right or wrong route here, because both lead you to the same place. Ask yourself which group you fall into it, and then decide what you need to be doing to push forward along your path. 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
