TKD would also seem to indicate that {ghojmoH} and {poSmoH} are simple
verbs, but we know better.  {jolpa'} appears in the word list, even
though it's explained as a compound noun on page 19.

>What evidence do you have from canon that any number used with

The {cha'vatlh ben HIq} example from Okrand ought to be enough evidence
that numbers don't always abut these "time words".

>I have seen the

Why do you put "noun" in quote marks?  That's what they are.
