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

For the rest of the month, I’ll be using Wednesdays to introduce you to a series of special nouns that will improve your command of spatial relations in Klingon. The first of these is bIng. B, Capital I, NG. bIng means the area below. This is a great word to use all by itself, with the locative suffix –Daq, or even as part of a Noun-Noun phrase. But don’t just take my word for it, study these examples:

mach bIng ’ach yap
the area below is small, but it’s sufficient

bIngDaq yuch vItu’
I found chocolate in the area below

bemlIj bIngDaq nav wIleghlaH
we can see the paper under the sole of your foot

 

What happens when you suddenly have locative nouns? It wouldn’t surprise me if you start finding new and exciting ways to discuss spatial relationships. Oh yes, Wednesdays will never be the same! qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
