Klingon Word of the Day for Wednesday, November 04, 2020

Klingon word: qe'rot 'oQqar
Part of speech: noun
Definition: carrot
Source: EuroTalk Talk Now Klingon  [TNK]

(KGT 88):  a root or tuber is a {'oQqar}

Known {'oQqarmey} are:

'anyan 'oQqar 		onion (TNK)
qe'rot 'oQqar 		carrot (TNK)
patat 'oQqar 		potato (TNK)
gharlIq 'oQqar 		garlic (TNK)

AFAIK none have been used in a sentence, but we do have the phrase {tlhagh patat 'oQqar naQHommey} "fries" (what the British call "chips") from TNK.

a slang term for the ocarina (a musical instrument) is "sweet potato"
