ref: HolQeD-12-2 p.9
cite: A duel ends, normally, with death. It is often the case, however, that one of the combatants will have been outmaneuvered and will find himself in a position from which he clearly cannot recover. Should this occur, he will probably shout out baq, a clipped form of yIbaq (Terminate it!). It is not normal in this context for him to shout out something like HIHoH (Kill me!), even though this is what he means. [KGT p.69]

cite: Literally be vertical, this word is used to refer to one's intellect, as in chong tlhIngan SuvwI’ (The Klingon warrior is profound---literally, The Klingon warrior is vertical; tlhIngan, Klingon; SuvwI’, warrior). In its literal sense, this word is the opposite of SaS (be horizontal), and as a slang term, it is an opposite as well, as SaS is used to mean be shallow, superficial. It is most likely that chong took on its slang meaning because of the prior existence of SaS, which has been used as slang for a much longer time. An equivalent meaning may be expressed without slang by using a word such as Qubchu’ (think perfectly, think clearly; Qub, think; -chu’, perfectly, clearly), as in Qubchu’ tlhIngan SuvwI’ (The Klingon warrior thinks clearly).

cite: Dach ("not pay attention, be distracted, lack focus") The verb Dach literally means "be absent," but when applied to a person who is obviously present or otherwise accounted for, it is usually interpreted to mean that the person's mind has wandered. It does not mean "absentminded," which involves forgetfulness. Rather, it means that the person is, for whatever reason, not focusing on the task at hand. Nonslang equivalents are qImHa’ ("not pay attention") and buSHa’, ("not focus [on], ignore.") [KGT p.149]

def: KGT
cite: The person who takes the order and brings the food is the jabwI’ (server) and the chef is the vutwI’ (cook; in a large restaurant, the head chef is referred to as the vutwI’ quv, the honored cook). In small establishments, the jabwI’ and vutwI’ are likely to be the same individual. If there is a separate bar (tach), the bartender (chom) will mix drinks; otherwise, these chores fall to the vutwI’. When taking a table's order, the jabwI’ neither writes anything down nor enters data into a computer. It is considered the duty of the jabwI’ to remember (qaw) the choices and to bring the correct food, and servers tend to be quite skilled at this. On the rare occasion when the jabwI’ has remembered incorrectly (qawHa’), the patron may reject (lajQo’) the dish. If the patron rejects a dish that the server believes has been properly remembered, however, the misunderstanding could develop into minor combat. For most of the other diners in the restaurant, this is regarded as an exhilarating diversion. [KGT pp.101--102]

If the title is used along with the name, one puts the name first, as is the case with all titles: Qugh joH (Lord Kruge), ghIrIlqa’ joH (Lady Grilka). When addressing the head of a house, a member of a lower class may use either the name plus joH or else joH plus -wI’, the first-person possessive suffix for beings capable of language: joHwI’ (my Lord, my Lady). This title also has an alternate form, jaw, which is used from time to time with no known difference in meaning or connotation, though joH is heard far more frequently. [KGT pp.40--41]
cite: [T]he head of a house is afforded the title joH (Lord, Lady), which, when one is addressing such a personage, may be used either after the name (as in qamor joH [Lord Kahmor]) or without the name if followed by the possessive suffix -wI’ (my), as in joHwI’ (my Lord, my Lady). [KGT p.198]

The fact that jorneb can be thought of as loosely consisting of the components jor explode and neb beak, bill, while nub be suspect, does not fit into the word also supports for its deprecation here.

KGT translation used here since all examples (mIw wa’DIch "first step", mIw paghDIch "zeroth step" and mIw HochDIch "last step" [KGT p.177]) seem to favor the "step" translation.

This is the only way to say replacement proverb currently, but in the past, the common term was the lengthier quvqa’meH vIttlhegh, literally, proverb for (the purpose of) being honored again. The word qa’meH, clearly a shortened form of quvqa’meH, was originally used only in the construction of qa’meH vIttlhegh, but, though historically two verb suffixes, it has become accepted as a noun in its own right, meaning replacement in the sense of something that takes over for or is used instead of something that is gone or that has been lost. It is not used for a temporary substitute or a stand-in; the word for that is lIw. [HolQeD-05-1 p.10]

sv: vara storslagen, vara underbar, vara utmärkt, vara fantastisk, vara bra [slang]
def: KGT
cite: The verb qu’ literally means be fierce. In its slang sense, it may be used adjectivally, as in taj qu’ (excellent knife; literally, fierce knife), or as the main verb in a sentence, as in qu’ taj (the knife is excellent; literally, the knife is fierce). Though, from the Klingon point of view, equating being fierce with being great, wonderful, and so on seems quite natural, the slang meaning of qu’ probably receives further support because it sounds just like the verb suffix -qu’, which is used for emphasis (compare Qatlh, difficult, and Qatlhqu’, very difficult). When applied to people or animals, it is not always clear whether the slang or nonslang meaning of qu’ is intended. That is, SuvwI’ qu’ (fierce warrior) could be interpreted literally, or it could mean excellent warrior. When applied to anything other than people or animals, the slang meaning is more likely. Thus, may’ qu’ (fierce battle) is really a way of saying excellent battle. In Klingon, only a participant in a battle, not the battle itself, can literally be described as fierce. The word qu’ may also be used as an exclamation (Great! Wonderful!). In this sense, it seems to be interchangeable with chong (literally, be vertical; see page 148). The slang usage of qu’ is currently extremely common among Klingons, and it has pretty much displaced another slang term with the same set of meanings (excellent, wonderful, etc.), Huv (literally, be clear, not obstructed), which was in vogue not all that long ago. The use of Huv for excellent is now considered old-fashioned. This is also the case with nong (passionate), an even older slang term for excellent. (As of this writing, the slang usage of nong seems to be making a comeback, but it is still too early to say whether this will really happen.) Nonslang verbs expressing similar ideas are Dun (be wonderful, great), pov (be excellent), and, as an exclamation, maj! (Good!). [KGT pp.159--161]

def: KGT
cite: The word Qop means be worn out and is usually applied to old weapons, tools, mechanical devices, and the like. It is also used to mean be dead, but only in reference to an animal that one was expecting to eat live. If a bowl of dead qagh (gagh, serpent worms) is placed before a Klingon, the disappointed diner will probably criticize the cook for preparing qagh Qop (dead gagh). The normal way to say be dead, referring to a person or animal, is by using the form Heghpu’ (has died): Heghpu’ SuvwI’ (The warrior has died). It is not appropriate to say SuvwI’ Qop (dead warrior, worn-out warrior.) [KGT p.162]

def: KGT
cite: As a rule, coffee is consumed plain---that is, black---but some Klingons prefer to mix other ingredients in with the coffee. If some kind of HIq (liquor) is added to the coffee, the drink is called ra’taj. It is said that the drink was originally nicknamed ra’wI’ taj (commander's knife, suggestive of its potency), and that the name was shortened over time. This often repeated story cannot be confirmed. In any event, ra’taj became one of the few Klingon foods to become popular outside of the Empire, though in an altered form. Instead of containing liquor, as does the genuine Klingon ra’taj, the "export" version (which came to be pronounced raktaj in Federation Standard) consists of strong Klingon coffee plus a nutlike flavoring. Eventually, a new fashion developed---adding cream to the raktaj---and with this innovation came yet another name, raktajino, modeled after the name of another popular coffee drink, cappuccino. Raktajino is now served hot or iced, with or without extra cream, and with or without the rind of some fruit to add even more flavor. Though it is sometimes called Klingon coffee, it is quite different from both plain qa’vIn and the alcoholic ra’taj. [KGT p.96]

Thus, SuvwI’ Sub is brave warrior (literally, solid warrior; SuvwI’, warrior) and Sub SuvwI’ means The warrior is brave (literally, The warrior is solid). It is inappropriate to use the word to describe anything other than a person; a phrase such as may’ Sub (may’, battle) would mean only solid battle and would probably be considered a meaningless utterance. The slang meaning of Sub is probably influenced by the phonetically identical noun Sub, meaning hero. Nonslang equivalents for Sub are yoH (be brave) and jaq (be bold), which can be used pretty much interchangeably. [KGT pp.165--166]

pos: noun
en: order, structure (societal) [slang]
sv: ordning, struktur (på samhälle) [slang]
def: KGT
cite: The word tlham, literally meaning gravity, is used to mean order or structure in the sense of an ordered or well-structured society. In the same way that gravity holds one to a planet (or, in the case of artificial gravity, to the floor of a space vessel), the structure of a society holds its members in, preventing them from going off in all directions. In other words, it ensures that a society function properly by keeping it from coming apart. The word is used in phrases such as tlham ghaj (have gravity---that is, have structure, order) or tlham Hutlh (lack gravity or lack structure, order). A very well ordered society may be said to have tlham’a’ (big gravity) or tlham HoS (strong gravity), while a society that is judged to be falling apart may have tlhamHom (little gravity) or tlham puj (weak gravity).

def: TKD; KGT
cite: A weapon that is particularly good, that is well designed and well constructed, is normally described as vaQ. Thus, a taj vaQ is a meticulously made knife and a ghanjaq vaQ is an especially nice mace. In speaking about a fine weapon, one could compliment it even further by adding the emphatic -qu’ to vaQ. A really spectacular bat'leth would be a betleH vaQqu’. The word vaQ is not often used in describing the newer weapons (disruptors and the like), though such locutions are heard from time to time. The original meaning of vaQ has been extended to mean effective, vigorous, aggressive and is now heard applied not only to weapons but also to people: SuvwI’ vaQ (aggressive warrior). [KGT p.68]

cite: This verb literally means "chew." In its slang sense, it is found in such constructions as choyIv ("You bother me"---literally, "You chew me"; cho-, "You [do something to] me") or muyIv romuluS Ha’DIbaH ("The Romulan dog irks me"; literally, "The Romulan animal chews me," where "Romulan animal" is a derogatory way to refer to a Romulan; mu-, "He/she [does something to] me"; romuluS, "Romulus"; Ha’DIbaH, "animal"). The subject of yIv can be only a person or creature, not an inanimate object or a situation. Thus, it is inappropriate to say something like muyIv ’Iw HIq bIr ("cold bloodwine chews me"; ’Iw HIq, "bloodwine"; bIr, "be cold").

def: KGT
cite: A popular effervescent drink, black in color, is called ’awje’. This is frequently, though not accurately, translated as "root beer," probably because of its superficial resemblance to the Federation soft drink, but it is made from, among other things, the marrow (melchoQ) taken from the bones of a teghbat ("teg'bat"). It is considered relatively mild, even for a Klingon nonalcoholic drink. [KGT p.95]

def: KGT
cite: For example, throughout the Empire, a soup whose main component is igvah liver has a special name, ghaw’. This word is avoided in the Vospeg region, however, because there, the word ghaw’ is a slang term meaning something like "one who is full of self-doubt or who is insecure" and is a word used only as an insult. To refer to the soup, one simply says ’IghvaH chej chatlh (literally, "igvah liver soup"). [KGT p.30]

cite: Rather than violating the rules by using the two [type 5] suffixes sequentially (that is, -lu’laH or -laHlu’), however, these speakers will say either -luH or -la’, employing totally artificial, made-up suffixes formed by fusing -lu’ and -laH, as in jagh jonluH or jagh jonla’ (The enemy can be captured). No one accepts such constructions as grammatical; their inappropriateness, the way they grate on the Klingon ear, is exactly what gives them elocutionary clout. A visitor may hear one of these odd suffixes occasionally, but, as with other intentionally ungrammatical forms, it is best to avoid using them until one is extremely comfortable with the nuances of Klingon style.
