Klingon Word of the Day for Tuesday, November 06, 2018

Klingon word: tlhay'
Part of speech: verb
Definition: be tame, domesticated
Source: qep'a' 23 [2016]

tlhay'moH  		tame,  domesticate (v) (qep'a' 2016 < TLP)

(Lieven, 4/27/2017):  In case there may be doubts in the meaning: I asked Maltz for this word referring to animals living in a house.

Used by Lieven in his {ta'puq mach} "The Little Prince" (TLP):

  reH Doch'e' Datlhay'moHbogh DaSaHnISqu'. 
  You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed. (TLP, chap. XXI)

tlhab 		be free, be independent (v)

  tlhab; ngem Ha'DIbaH rur 
  free (independent) as a forest animal

(KGT 132):  though this refers to how or where any animal lives rather than to a specific animal

toy' 		serve (a master) (v)
ghatlh 		dominate (v)
yach 		pet, stroke (v)
Saj 		pet (n)
