Re: [Tlhingan-hol] {qoSta'} clarified

De'vID (

<p dir="ltr">&gt; &gt; It was just literally electricity container.. However<br>
&gt; &gt; thinking about it and<br>
&gt; &gt; what was said about {HoS Hal} &quot;power supply&quot; from SkyBox S14.<br>
&gt; &gt; maybe &#39;ul<br>
&gt; &gt; &#39;aplo&#39; refers to a battery in general but specifically one on<br>
&gt; &gt; a shelf an<br>
&gt; &gt; unattached battery not giving power but just containing it.<br>
&gt; &gt; So that when<br>
&gt; &gt; connected it is still an &#39;ul &#39;aplo&#39; but then also becomes HoS Hal..<br>
&gt; Not all power sources are batteries.</p>
<p dir="ltr">Indeed, not all &quot;batteries&quot; are even batteries, according to some pedantic electrical engineers. They are single electrical cells. They don&#39;t become batteries until you connect more than one together.</p>

<p dir="ltr">It&#39;s not apparent to me that {HoS Hal} is anything more than the word {HoS} followed by the word {Hal}, in the SkyBox card sentence, rather than a specialised term referring to a specific type of thing. (Aside: Klingon Monopoly has {HoSHal}, one word, for the &quot;utility companies&quot;.) Also, we don&#39;t know that {nISwI&#39; beH} are powered by electricity. Perhaps the {HoS Hal} is an {&#39;otlh &#39;aplo&#39;} or a {rugh &#39;aplo&#39;}.</p>
