Word: many times, time and time again



repeatedly but speaker don't know the number of times. New word, or I would like to know if I can say *law'logh* or can not, want Okrand's decision.

Comment below with feedback and suggestions.


  1. Since law' is a verb, no known grammar would allow law'logh. If anything, it would probably be 'oplogh, since 'op is between pagh and Hoch and we have the precedent of 'opleS already.

    1. I think so. But {'arlogh} should be odd, too. Perhaps Maltz knows another word for "many times", or Klingons don't say so…

      1. law'logh is illegal under the current understanding. Since we know that Hochlogh is legal then 'arlogh should be fine, and 'oplogh should mean an indefinite number of times, not many times. I have argued in the past that 'op'a'logh should mean many times since theoretically it should mean a great number of times, but it would be good to get an official answer on this.

        1. We know that 'arlogh is legal because it appears in canon: 'arlogh Qoylu'pu'? is the common way of asking for the time.

        2. Hochlogh and paghlogh are specifically noted in KGT as being slang based on intentional breaking of grammatical rules, aren't they? I generally wouldn't accept them in a Klingon text of any real formality.

  2. Wouldn't anything that doesn't require a specific quantity be able to be dealt with by using pIj often?

    1. I want to say "I saw that movie many times", "I tried that many times but…".
      I want to know new words or Klingon expressions. If they use pIj in that sense, accept it.
