Sure, why not?  It doesn't say you can't, it doesn't even imply you
can't.  I certainly see nothing wrong, for instance, with saying
something like:

jIyajbe; 'Iv HoHta' 'Iv?     "I don't understand; who killed whom?"

So, "nuq qaq law' nuq qaq puS" works for me; of course, I don't
remember what the original intent was as far as meaning.
