The Klingon Language Institute Forums Translation Requests Dog commands in Klingon

  • Dog commands in Klingon

    Posted by aelirenn on December 24, 2023 at 6:07 am


    I have registered to ask for this specific favor.

    I am getting a puppy and instead of teaching her commands in German (I live in Europe, near Germany and Switzerland, where those languages are used) I would like teach her commands in Klingon. I find it most suitable for a magnificent beast she will become 😀

    Could you do me an honor of proposing best suitable words for basic commands listed below?

    • Sit
    • Stay
    • Come
    • Down
    • Leave it
    • Drop it
    • Heel
    • Off
    • Watch (Look at me)

    Thank you in advance!

    Sorry for the delay in replying. With the holidays going on I haven’t been online much.

    Power Klingon has a section on Pet Commands. I recommend listening to it to get a general idea of how commands work: https://hol.kag.org/page/audio.html?f=20%20Pet%20commands

    Then you just use the verbs or phrases that match the commands you want to say:

    • Sit – ba’
    • Stay – ratlh
    • Come – naDev ghoS
    • Leave it – lon
    • Drop it – chagh
    • Off – lItHa’
    • Watch – HIqIm
    • Stop – mev

    I also apologize for not replying faster, I had really hard year start at work 😒 And later website seemed to have problems and I could not log in.

    Thank you very much, this is very helpful! However, now I am worried about correct pronouncing, because I have no experience with Klingon 😩
