Sigh.  Not correct.  -Qo' is absolutely allowed on non-imperative
verbs.  Go back and read 4.3 (page 47) again.  Everyone gets to give
the BG a lash with a wet noodle.

>qatlh pImev wIneHqu'???  {{:)

This is also erroneous.  Remember again that this is one of those
sentence-as-object cases, and, as such, is really two sentences.
It is the second sentence which is the question, and therefore qatlh
should go at the head of it.  Thus:

pImev qatlh wIneHqu'???
