Dr. Marc Okrand, creator of the Klingon language, put in an
appearance (as he usually does) at this year's Bqep'a'/B.
On Sunday morning, as things were winding down and people were
leaving, he revealed a new word from Maltz.

BwIlpuq/B - Ipudding/I

Later that day, as Marc was driving home from Pennsylvania, he was
caught in a torrential rain storm. Somehow, because of the downpour
Marc was able to link up with Maltz, question his Klingon informant
some more, and obtain a second term. Alas, the rain ended before more
could be wrenched from Maltz.

Marc emailed me with this additional bit of BtlhIngan Hol/B last
night (I choose to think of this as a birthday gift from Maltz). Marc
asked Maltz about how to say "digress." I'll quote directly from
Marc's email now:

"He wasn't aware of a single word for that, but he said there's a
commonly used phrase: BDoS chIl/B. So II digress/I would be
BDoS vIchIl/B. And so on."
