*DungluQ* is /noon,/ or 12 pm.

In English we have the words /morning, afternoon, evening,/ and /night,/ 
which aren't rigidly defined by clock-time/. /A common understanding is 
that morning is from dawn to 11:59 am; afternoon is from 12:01 pm to the 
beginning of twilight; evening is from the beginning of twilight to the 
end of dusk; night is everything else. /Evening,/ in particular, changes 
in meaning depending on the speaker and the context; it can often cover 
what might otherwise be considered the late part of the afternoon.

Klingon has the following words, which may or may not correspond to the 
English terms:
