I agree that {naQ roj} is a valid sentence.  I do not claim that {naQ} can
only be a verb (functioning as an adjective to use the English grammar
terminology) following a noun.  I really need to see {naQ} in canon sentences
to gain a deeper understanding of its nuances, then.

Meanwhile, I feel that {QIm naQ yIlo'} means "Use the entire egg, not just
part of it."  My difficulty was in the connotation brought forth in English
about a chemical substance being incomplete somehow.  Even the Klingon word
{HutlhHa'} seems preferable.
