Klingon Word of the Day for Saturday, October 17, 2020

Klingon word: bIS'ub
Part of speech: noun
Definition: bottom (interior)
Source: HQ:v8n3p2

(IMO, HQ 8.3):  The word for bottom, the counterpart of {yor}, is {pIrmuS}. This word refers to the underside of something, not the interior bottom (such as the bottom of a well or the bottom of a bowl where a few drops of milk remain after eating cereal). The word for the interior bottom of something is {bIS'ub}. If an item is located in the bottom of a box, it is located in the box's {bIS'ub}. If something is found underneath a box, it is found beneath the box's {pIrmuS}. 

pIrmuS  	bottom (exterior) (n)
yor  		top (exterior) (n)
'aqroS 		top (interior) (n)
rav 		floor (n)
