Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, June 11, 2018

Klingon word: tenwal
Part of speech: noun
Definition: page (in a book)
Source: qepHom 2015 p.18
_______________________________________________

(Lieven, 10/29/2015):  You would not say {nav wej} for "page three", unless you're talking about three separate sheets of paper. A "page" (like the page in a book, that you can number) is a {tenwal}. Maltz also wanted me to point out that {tenwal} ("page") is used only for numbered pages in a book or something similar. One side of a piece of paper is a {Dop}, so a piece of paper has two {Dopmey}. Usually, there is one {tenwal} per {Dop}, but page numbering can get confusing sometimes.

(Lieven, 10/27/2015)  Maltz fills 10 pages ({tenwalmey}) of this year's {qepHom} exercise book.
