Klingon WOTD: 'uSu' (noun)

speersd (speersd@georgetown.edu)



This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Friday, December 14, 2007.

Category: Food

Klingon word:   'uSu'
Part of Speech: noun 
Definition:     sauce for [gladst] 
Source: KGT (232 KE, 255 EK) 
Swedish: sås till ~gladst~


Additional Notes:
KGT p. 27: Similarly, in all regions, the word {vIychorgh} means "juice" or "sap"--that is, the liquid from a plant.  In some regions, however, its meaning has been extended to also include any liquid that accompanies food, as if a general term for "sauce."  Thus, instead of saying {ghevI'} for the sauce that normally accompanies {qagh} ("serpent worms"), the common expression is {qagh vIychorgh} (literally, "{qagh} juice" or the like).  Likewise, instead of using the term {'uSu'} for the sauce traditionally offered with [gladst], {tlhatlh vIychorgh} (literally "[gladst] juice") is used.
