Re: [Tlhingan-hol] Klingon Word of the Day: taqnar

Tim Stoffel (

I know a while back there was a discussion about some Klingon dish that
is the partly digested stomach contents of some animal. I am assuming
that this is not the same thing, but rather the abdominal organs of an
animal taken as a whole, and used for food.

        Even if we accept it (it was neither written by nor "approved
        by" Marc
        Okrand), I'm pretty sure the word refers to the animal itself,
        not to
        the body parts (or the dish prepared from them).

You are probably right. This was one of the few words sent to me by
another Klingon speaker. Since I don't have a copy of the book I had no
