Hey, looks pretty cool!

Maybe DaQum?

Um, I don't have "rI'" as a noun.  Are we accepting implicit
nomilalizations?  I'm still fuzzy on it.

>chuSdaq ponglIj rI'Se'lIj je junobchugh, vaj pIrI' - If you give us

"chuS" is also a verb.  I'm also not sure about "-Daq" here; our evidence
points to "-Daq" as being spatial, not temporal.  Maybe "ghum DaQoyDI'..."?
