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

I’ve really started looking forward to Sundays, because it’s the only chance I get to chat with my old friend QIb. The fact that you get to eavesdrop on our conversation and pick some extra vocabulary is just a bonus. And speaking of bonuses, here are this week’s additional nouns and verbs:

The nouns are:

rav / floor

wep / coat or jacket

’etlh / sword

The verbs are:

chagh / drop

yap / enough or sufficient

’ut / necessary or essential


QIb: ’etlhwIj Daleghpu’’a’ / have you seen my sword?

’angghal: ghaytan ravDaq Dachaghqa’ / you probably dropped it on the floor again

QIb: vItu’ta’ ’ach DaH wepwIj vItu’laHbe’ / I found it, but now I can’t find my jacket

’angghal: ’utqu’’a’ / is it really necessary?

QIb: ’etlh ’ut law’ wep ’ut puS / the sword is more essential than the jacket

’angghal: toH yap ’etlhlIj neH / so, just your sword is sufficient


And that’s all QIb had to say this week. If you paid close attention, you’ve picked up three new nouns, three new verbs, and some new ideas about how to combine them. Sounds like a pretty good way to end the week. You should go out and celebrate. Tomorrow I’ll have a new verb for you. Until then, remember, 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
