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

Many of you may have been at liberty for the last several days. If so, then today’s verb is dedicated to you. It’s ’uH. Apostrophe, U, Capital H. ’uH means have a hangover. You probably don’t need the following examples, but it would be a shame to waste them:

wa’Hu’ machech ’ej DaHjaj ma’uH
yesterday we were drunk and today we are hungover

not Da’uH HIq Datlhutlhbe’mo’
you never have a hangover because you don’t drink ale

jI’uHqa’chugh vaj HIHoH
if I have a hangover again, then kill me!


Can you really enjoy speaking Klingon? Can you enjoy losing yourself in a constructed language spoken by fictional aliens? Can you enjoy spending time studying grammar that someone else invented? These are obviously rhetorical questions. We already know you can enjoy all these things. The only question worth asking is how much you enjoy them. And you find the answer to that by doing them. Every single day. 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
