  1. Considering how others have commented on the use of words we already have in order to twist ourselves around an idea, I point out jeqmoH, as inadequate as I feel it is.

    1. I agree that it’s inadequate, since there’s no impaling going on here, for instance:

      HewvaD beb jeqmoH renwI’.
      The architect made the statue protrude from the roof.

  2. Here’s what I had to do in nuq bop bom for lack of this verb.

    qImyal is the villian of the story. Mahoun is one of the heroes.
    (qImyal has just stumbled off a roof).

    bIng lubej. QamtaH qImyal ‘ach yItbe’. jachtaH neH. rIQqu’chugh qatlh yavDaq pumbe’pu’? rIQqu’be’chugh qatlh QamtaH neH? pay’ ghu’ tllhoj Mahoun. qImyal DaqDaq yav jeq baS naQ. naQvetlhDaq pumchu’pu’mo’ qImyal, ghaH DuQchu’pu’. ghaH Qutlh. qImyal volchaHvo’ loQ jeq baS ‘er’In.

    I think I got my point (har har) across, but were I to rewrite nuq bop bom, this word would definitely clarify this scene.
