  1. Use {mer} ‘surprise’, but treat the relevant noun as the object:

    {vulqangan ghaH ‘e’ ghojDI’, merlaw’ ngoDvam}
    “When she learned that he was a Vulcan, this fact surprised her.”

    {mumer ghu’, naDev qaghommo’}
    “The situation surprises me, because I meet you here.”

    {ghaH mer buqDajDaq yuch tu’bogh}
    “The chocolate she found in her bag surprised her.”
