Are you sure?  I thought I had to use Da- because I was saying, "You need to say
it" and the object was <He'So' je mu'tlheghvam>.  If I wanted to say, <You said,
"This sentence stinks too">  then I would do it like this <He'So' mu'tlheghvam je
bIjatlh> because that would be a quote.

I'm confused by this and I don't think I agree but I don't have enough experience
to defend my position so, unless pagh says different, I won't attempt to argue
that.  I know that jatlh can go before or after but I'm not sure it applies to
this situation because it wasn't a quote.
