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

It’s sobering to realize that only five more opportunities remain to us to draw inspiration from Marc Okrand’s excellent book Klingon for the Galactic Traveler, but such is life. Today’s selection is the verb wagh. W, A, GH. wagh means be expensive. In a literal sense, this word will surely come in handy when dealing with Ferengi, but as you will see, it can also be used figuratively.

motlh wagh qa’vInna’
real coffee is usually expensive

qoHpu’ wagh law’ juppu’ wagh puS
fools are more expensive than friends

waghchoHlaH loptaHghach
ongoing celebration can get expensive

Can you imagine all the ways you will use Klingon once your proficiency expands? Think about some of the possibilities. Ask yourself who you will talk to, what you will say, and where you will speak. All of these opportunities are there just ahead of you. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
