Klingon Word of the Day for Sunday, February 20, 2022

Klingon word: 	may' Sut
Part of speech: 	noun
Definition: 	body armor ("battle clothing")
Source: 	qepHom 2015 p.14

(qepHom 2015 p.14):  Maltz just said {SIryoD} is "body armor". He said he thought about other words too, he mentioned {may’ Sut}, but he liked that {SIryoD} better. He said {SIryoD} is an old word.

(KGT 57):  A warrior's full set of armor, including weapons and clothing, is his {may'luch} (literally, "battle gear"). Traditional clothing worn in battle, known as {Hip}, the word currently used to mean uniform, had both a protective function and a more utilitarian one, since it was from the clothing that weapons ({nuHmey}) or ammunition ({nIch}) could be hung.

(ghunchu'wI', 8/21/11 < 'u'-OPERA):  [{yIr} "gather (something)"] was used in a command for a warrior to gather his armor and weapons before a battle.
