Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, March 11, 2019

Klingon word: letlh
Part of speech: noun
Definition: stairs, stairway, stairway leading to door of a ship (regional)

(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.
