This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Saturday, April 30, 2005.

Category: Weapons/War

Klingon word:   yoD
Part of Speech: noun 
Definition:     shield 
Source: TKD (115 KE, 152 EK) 
Swedish: sköld

Additional Notes:
KGT p. 67: As protection against these various weapons, a warrior often carried a shield, or {yoD}, basically a large plate of metal.  The verb form of "shield" is also {yoD}, and to "shield oneself" is {yoD'egh}.  (Although the federation Standard word "shields" refers to both the old hand-held protective armor and the force field protecting a vessel--the newer meaning clearly based on the older--in Klingon, there is no connection between the two.  The force field on a ship is called {botjan}.  To shield a ship, one must "activate the shields," or {botjan chu'}.)
	yoD (verb) - shield
