<'e'> is not used when the second verb is <neH>.

tachmey Daqel'a'? HIq laSvarghmey Daqel'a'?

<waQ> is a verb meaning "obstruct", so you would either have to say <chal
luwaQ 'engmey> or use a different verb and say <HuvHa' chal>. I'm also not
clear on why you used the perfective suffix <-pu'> here.

Same comment about <'e'> as before. Also, since <SuD> is a verb, the
<SuDmey> bit is ungrammatical, but I suspect you knew that and did it
anyway, which I don't have a problem with.
