I know the right way to answer {nuqDaq DaDab} and the right way is {Shannon
vIDab}.  I have no doubt about this at all.

How do I KNOW?  KGT clearly states that {Dab} means "live at."  From related
discussion regarding the necessity of the locative, we can conclude that
locative is not required for such a gloss of a Klingon verb.
