Klingon WOTD: gham (noun)

speersd (speersd@georgetown.edu)



This is the Klingon Word Of The Day for Sunday, May 13, 2007.

Category: Body Parts

Klingon word:   gham
Part of Speech: noun 
Definition:     limb (of an animal) 
Source: KGT (215 KE, 248 EK) 
Swedish: lem, kroppsdel (på djur)


Additional Notes:
KGT p. 42: The archaic words tend to come up in conversations about food.  For example, the usual word for the leg of an animal, when prepared as food, is {gham} ("limb"), the same word used for the leg of the living animal.  A leg served as food at a banquet in an upper-class household, however, is likely to be called a {HaJDob}, an old word for "limb."

KGT p. 88, as food.
