Qanqor has asked me to keep my eyes open for beginning students who post 
outside the KLBC, and to correct their posts as well... so I am correcting 
this under the KLBC header.  This was correct, but for two errors:  you used 
jI- instead of vI- in <jIghojqu'> and <jIlaD>.  For <ghoj>, you have the 
object <tlhIngan Hol>, and for <laD>, you have the object <jabbI'IDmeyraj>.  
Since qoran had several verbs in there with the right prefixes, I am not going 
to go into any more detail why it should be vI- instead of jI-, but I 
encourage all of you to re-read the section on prefixes, (pages 32-34) and to 
try to be a bit more attentive of them.  If I am still seeing confusion on 
this in later posts, I will post something in much more detail for you.
