Klingon Word of the Day for Sunday, September 27, 2020

Klingon word: wItlh
Part of speech: verb
Definition: break (something) off

AFAIK never used in a Klingon sentence.

(KGT 99):  A diner transfers a portion to his or her plate … by simply grabbing the desired quantity of food with a hand... If necessary, two hands may be used to break off ({wItlh}) a slab of the desired fare.

(KGT 84):  A larger animal may be sliced into pieces or a section of a plant may be broken off. This food is often described as {Soj tlhol} (raw, unprocessed food), as opposed to {Soj vutlu'pu'bogh} (food that somebody has prepared).
