Kinds of Duj

David Trimboli ( [KLI Member] [Hol po'wI']

There has long been a question about whether {Duj} "ship, vessel" can 
mean anything other than a spaceship. Does it include ships on water? 
What about cars?

I just noticed something in the early part of The Klingon Dictionary:

    It is quite likely that {Do'} is an Old Klingon word for
    /space vessel/ (the modern Klingon word is {Duj})...

This would appear to show that {Duj} refers ONLY to space-going vessels. 
It COULD mean only that {Duj} is a modern descendant of Old Klingon 
{Do'} with a slightly different meaning, but that does not seem to be 
the point of the text. I think it's saying that the modern word for
"space vessel" is {Duj}.
