<body class='hmmessage'><div dir='ltr'>ghItlhpu' Alex, jatlh:<br><span>&gt; Klingons clearly do not use condiments on their {tlhagh patat 'oQqar naQHommey}.<br>&gt; But is there a word for the {tlhIl} that Terrans known as salt?<br><br>No. I find myself going straight for {qut na'} when it's necessary. Either that, or I'll simply use the verb: {SojwIj vIna'moH} "I put salt on my food".<br><br></span><span>&gt; (As a side note, Maltz must surely have come across vinegar, too, by now,, as well<br>&gt; as various Terran herbs and spices<br><br>To be fair, we don't know what kind of conditions Marc's keeping him in. :)<br><br>&gt; we could do with words for "vinegar," "herb" and "spice" as well as for salt).<br><br>You find them that difficult to work around? "Spice" would be well rendered by {tlhorghmoHwI'}, "vinegar" by {HIq wIb} or {taS wIb}, and "herb" by {por tlhorgh}. But of course, more specific contexts would give you more options.<br><br>QeS<br></span> 		 	   		  </div></body>
