Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, September 14, 2020

Klingon word: yopwaH
Part of speech: noun
Definition: pants

(KGT 58):  A skin belt (qogh) both held pants (yopwaH) in place and provided a place from which to hang weapons or weapon holders.

(Lieven, 12/07/2010):   The word {buq} could be "bag, sack, pouch" or even "pocket". When clarity is needed, one could say, for example, {yopwaH buq} "pants pouch" or {wep buq} "coat pouch" for "pants pocket" or "coat pocket," but when the context is clear, {buq} alone would suffice for pocket.
