Klingon Word of the Day for Sunday, August 11, 2019

Klingon word: tuQHa'moH
Part of speech: verb
Definition: undress

(HQ 2.4):  {qogh} "ear", of course is homophonous with {qogh}, "belt" ... This homophony explains why the Klingon slang expression {qogh tuQmoHHa'}, literally "take off one's belt" is used to mean to not hear, for example, {qogh vItuQmoHHa'pu'} "I've taken off my belt; your secret is safe with me."

tuQ  		wear (clothes) (v)
tuQmoH  	dress (v)
