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

Today’s noun is as familiar as your foot. It’s waq. W, A, Lowercase Q. waq means shoe. I told you it was familiar. Let’s really burn it into your brain with a few practice sentences:

reH mutoj HoD waq
the captain’s shoe always deceives me

nuqDaq bombogh waqmey wItu’laH
where can we find singing shoes?

QapmeH waqmeywIj qamDu’ poQ
in order for my shoes to succed, they require feet

waqmey vIghajbe’chugh vaj jIHaw’laHbe’
if I do not have shoes, I cannot flee


You probably already know that practice is a necessary part of success with any language learning. That doesn’t mean you have to like it, or enjoy it, or even look forward to it. But denying it does no good, and if you ignore the need, you might as well not bother to pretend you’re learning a language, because you won’t be. The worlds that language can open require your active participation to do so. 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
