Subject: More from Maltz

Dr. Marc Okrand, creator of the Klingon language, put in an
appearance (as he usually does) at this year's qep'a'.
On Sunday morning, as things were winding down and people were
leaving, he revealed a new word from Maltz.
wIlpuq - pudding
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 tlhIngan Hol 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: DoS chIl. So I digress would be DoS vIchIl. And so on."
