tlhIngan Hol lughojqang not 'e' vIpIH.

Just keep clear what verb the "never" applies to, though I guess 
the main thing is the choice of the second verb. It would really 
work as well to say:

not tlhIngan Hol lughojqang 'e' vIpIH.

When you use {tul} instead, putting {not} later in the sentence 
sort of works, but not as well as with {pIH}.
