Klingon Word of the Day for Thursday, August 31, 2017

Klingon word: mot
Part of speech: verb
Definition: be stunned, be knocked out
Source: qep'a' 24 [2017]

So new it's never appeared in canon AFAIK.

Duq 		be stunned (i.e. astonished/astounded/dumbfounded) (v)
yay'  		be shocked,  be dumbfounded (v)

(qurgh < MO, qep'a' 2017):   [Okrand] also said about {Duq} and {yay'}, which have similar meanings, that they are synonyms but {Duq} tends to be more so than {yay'}.

rel 		be dazed (i.e. unable to think properly) (v)
ver 		be dizzy (v)

(qurgh < MO, qep'a' 2017):  [{ver}] is the same word as "be spiral". This refers to having a dizzy sensation -- being lightheaded, feeling like you're spinning around. It cannot be used in the sense of silly.
mIS 		be confused, be mixed up (v)
mIS 		confusion (n)
