>A few problems:
>If I were to say "they stop working" would it be <vum 'e' lumev> (they
>work, they stop it.)
va'! bIlugh. Yes, I should have put lu- on there.
(using the language at work I picked up the habit of using clipped klingon)
><loD> is singular, shouldn't it be loDpu'? <Hoch loD> is "all of the man",
>as opposed to just his arm.
[Hoch loD] is not [all of the man], its [every man]
[loD naQ] would be [all of the man], (as opposed to just his arm)
This sentence could be written with the -pu' or not.
[Hoch loDpu'] would be [all the men (stop working)]
[Hoch loD] would be [each man (stops working)]
>The sentence said "go home" not "come home" so it should be <jaH>
ghoS is more than just come.
Sure jaH can be used.
ghoS doesn't really have an english equivalent.
ghoS: approach, go away from, proceed, come, follow (a course), thrust
over time you will come to understand ghoS
I would stick with ghoS for this sentence
>*** I *really* wish I knew about <-DI'> ***
>The new sentence would read:
> SISDI' vum 'e' lumev Hoch loDpu' 'ej juH jaH
