    I’ve long thought that it would be great if the gloss of *noSvagh* as deodorant were only half the story; that it had a more general meaning that could include incense. Besides, the first thing I think of when I see *deodorant* is deodorant used for personal hygiene which, to my mind, is about as Klingon as tribble stew.

    How would you say “Incense and peppermints, the color of time” in Klingon?

      A word for mint is pending.

      qun qalmuS means the color of history
