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

As much as it pains me to tell you, this is the last time this year that together we will open up Marc Okrand’s classic work, Klingon for the Galactic Traveler. I hope you’ve enjoyed the fifty or so words we’ve shared from it. And there’s just enough time for one more. Specifically, a verb, ngal. That’s NG, A, L. ngal means be chewy. If you’re headed to a party to ring in the New Year, perhaps you can use one or more of the following practice sentences to impress the other celebrants:

wa’Hu’ megh ngal law’ ’uQ ngal puS
yesterday’s lunch was chewier than dinner

ngalchugh vaj ’oH Sopbe’ mIl’oDwIj
if it’s chewy then my sabre bear won’t eat it

ngalmo’ taj jej Dalo’nIS
because it’s chewy, you need to use a sharp knife

You could make a decision, a resolution if you will, to use more Klingon in the coming year. It may seem difficult now, but when you take it day by day, you’ll find you can do it That’s how this podcast came about, and look, here we are, a year later. What more proof could you need that language opens worlds? qo’mey poSmoH Hol.
