Klingon Word of the Day for Sunday, November 15, 2020

Klingon word: yInroH
Part of speech: noun
Definition: life signs

AFAIK never used in canon.

(Felix, 10/25/2107):  Lieven has written on Twitter that this word [{rIS} "make a cracking or snapping sound, emit a signal"] is similar to {tlhuD}. It used to be used to transmit audio, but now is apparently also a way to transmit life signs.
