Klingon Word of the Day for Thursday, August 03, 2017

Klingon word: naDqa'ghach
Part of speech: noun
Definition: re-commendation

>From TKD Addendum

The undoing of {naDHa'ghach}  "discommendation", the total disowning of a member of Klingon society-usually for treason. It is analogous to excommunication during the Earth's Middle Ages, however the next seven generations of the victim's family are disgraced as well. (TNG "Sins of the Father")  Derived from {naDqa'} "commend again,  re-commend" -- i.e. to rehabilitate,  reinstate.

AFAIK never used in a sentence.

"I have powerful friends who can help restore your name." (J'Dan to Worf, TNG "The Drumbeat")
