Klingon Word of the Day for Monday, March 15, 2021

Klingon word: 	'ej De' vIchel
Part of speech: 	adv
Definition: 	by the way, parenthetically
Source: 	qep'a' 27  [2020]

(qep'a' 2020):  This comes at the beginning of a sentence.  This is the full form.  In everyday conversation, {‘ej} and/or {De’} (and even {vI-}) are often omitted.  Klingon grammarians argue about whether the resulting {De’chel} should be considered an adverbial in its own right.
