 cares to clear this up more, I'll be delighted. Meanwhile, I 
 don't have the ego to take this on as a personal mission to set 
 Okrand straight on how his language is supposed to work.

In a prior message from you, you have acknowledged that the word {nuqDaq} is
the word for "where?"  It is NOT simply {nuq} plus a locative.

So, the correct question is {nuqDaq DaDab} and the correct answer is {Shannon
vIDab}, without {-Daq}.  No further reasoning is required to settle this one.
