This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Thursday, December 20, 2007.

Category: Food

Klingon word:   DuDwI'
Part of Speech: noun 
Definition:     stirring stick 
Source: KGT (214 KE, 250 EK, 259 EK) 
Swedish: blandningskäpp, omrörningspinne, käpp/pinne för omrörning


Additional Notes:
KGT p. 97.  The stick used for stirring in a {'un} ("pot") is usually called a {DuDwI'} ("mixer"), though sometimes the term {'un naQ} ("pot cane") is heard.  If the end of the {DuDwI'} is flattened out, paddlelike, the device may also be called a {ngawDeq}.  A scooping implement, much like a garden trowel, used to remove food from a pot, is a {bo'Dagh}.
 
Synonyms: 'un naQ
