      I’ve used tlhIn in exactly this way (e.g. “yuchlIj tlhIn yISuq”) but without being sure that’s how it was meant to be used. I see now, though, that boQwI’ has example sentences that support this usage. Are those canonical? I’m having a hard time finding the exact new words list from the 2017 qepHom’a’ to verify.
