Klingon Word of the Day for Sunday, July 22, 2018

Klingon word: choghvat
Part of speech: noun
Definition: stairway leading to door of a ship, gangplank

(KGT 29):  the word for stairs or stairway in most of the Empire is {letlh}. One type of {letlh} is a {choghvat}, the stairway leading to and from the doorway of a ship. In a couple of dialects in the Mekro'vak (meqro'vaq) region, however, {letlh} refers only to the stairway connected to a ship, while {ngep'oS} is any other kind of stairway but not one used to enter or exit a ship.
