Re: Adjectives and vIH

Two similar sentences from Holtej:

>3.  peghlu'bogh nuH
>I offer the translation: "the weapon which is kept secret."

> So, to say 
>"limited food" for example,
>3.  vuSlu'bogh Soj
>Unfortunately, I have no sense of how stylistically correct this is.  

Well, before you can get around to stylistically correct, there's
the more fundamental issue of grammatically correct.  Which neither
of these are.

Word order, my friend, word order.  A verb with -lu' doesn't take a
subject, and that includes a -bogh verb.  These should be:

nuH peghlu'bogh


Soj vuSlu'bogh
