And this just don't works for me because /qa/ is the suffix for *I-you* kind of stuff. The pronoun /'e'/ requires a suffix
indicating third person. For what you want to say I'd have chosen something like 

<qama' vaghDIch yIHoH> qaja'pu'. 

Or am I loosing the point? 

btw. Is /ra'/ a word of speaking? could I come up with something like

<qama' vaghDIch yIHoH> qara'pu'.

without beeing stared at?
