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

There’s just enough time before the year runs out to teach you one more item in our collection of spatial relations nouns. It’s retlh. R, E, TLH. retlh means the area beside. It works just like the other spatial nouns we’ve been talking about, as the following examples will make clear:

bIng char law’ retlh char puS
it’s slimier below than beside

vavlI’ retlhvo’ betleHvetlh Datlhap
you took that bat’lath from beside your father

romuluSngan retlhDaq pagh wItu’
we found nothing alongside the Romulan


Sometime, somewhere, you’ll find an everyday use for nearly everything you know how to say in Klingon. Okay, maybe not that warp field generator, but most things. And when it happens, it will be effortless. The right word will just come to you, like cool water flowing in a stream. Sometime, somewhere. And there’s really nothing you can do to stop it. qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
