 pab vIqeltaHvIS jIjang:
 The verb prefix {bo-} indicates a plural second-person subject.  That
 means the subject is "y'all".  {vay'} doesn't agree with {bo-}.  Either
 use a verb prefix that indicates a third-person subject, or make the
 subject {tlhIH} (in which case you can leave it off entirely, as it adds
 nothing to the sentence). >>

'ach qatlh bIjatlh {vay'} doesn't agree with {bo-}?
