Re: Placement of aspect suffixes

<< A trick I often use myself is to ask if the word 'already' is
 appropriate, and if it is, I put the verb in perfective.  This
 tends to do away with confusing aspect with tense, since it works
 in any time frame: "I had already done..., I already did...,
 I will have already done..."

YOU may use this trick, but what basis do we have in the Klingon language that
this is the right trick to be using?
