Description/Reason:

I've often thought this might be a discrete word, as opposed to the more literal {vaj taw}, {SuvwI' taw}, {vaj He}, etc.

  1. These words refer to the way of the warrior, but do not include the overall demands of being a warrior or the notion that a warrior improves physically and spiritually as he goes along.{vaj taw} or {SuvwI’ taw} work for this, but I’m not ready to assume that Klingons express the concept symbolically, although path of the warrior certainly sounds Klingon. I would like to hear Okrand’s thoughts on it, in any case.

  2. As I hinted in I my first response, I’m distinguishing the “way of the warrior” ( the lifestyle a warrior adopts when he becomes a warrior, the wisdom and habits of a warrior, etc. which is what The Klingon Way is all about) with the path of a warrior, which is a course in life which an aspiring young Klingon might choose. While {SuwI’ tIgh} is included in the notion of the warriors path, it is only one aspect of it. It doesn’t include the notion of choosing to become a warrior, then using specific methods and exercises to reach greater levels of spiritual and martial achievement. I may not have explained that we’ll, but for me those two notions, while covering some of the same ground, are distinct.
