qay' nuq?  Since you correctly understand the word {ngaj} as referring to
time, I assume you would understand {jIngaj} as "I'll be brief" instead of
"I'll be short (in physical distance)."  Thus I really have no idea what is
confusing you, and I have no idea what you want me to explain.  Whatever it
is that keeps us from communicating appears still to be in place.
