Klingon Word of the Day for Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Klingon word: tlhImqaH
Part of speech: noun
Definition: type of food, *zilm'kach*

First seen in DS9 "Melora".  Dr Bashir ordered it at the Klingon restaurant.  

(KGT 94):  If a dish with a standard preparation technique (a {nay' motlh}, "usual dish") is being offered, asking how it is to be prepared is a demonstration of cultural ignorance. Thus, in addition to pipius claw, questions about {bIreQtagh} (bregit lung), {targh tIq} (heart of targ), {raHta'} (racht), {tlhImqaH} (zilm'kach), and {Qaj tlhuQ} (kradge tail) should be avoided.
