<-lu> vIlo'taHvIS jIlugh'a'?

[I'm confused. I wanted to say "when I used" but isn't -taH a
current/continuous sort of thing? Oh! what about <vIlo'ta'DI>? I'm trying
to say "when I USED it", implying my deliberate use that last time", not
"when I use it", implying all the times I use it.]

and that <'lu> with the reversed prefix-thing. Is "nobody" really
indefinite? "Somebody" certainly is since the possibilites of the subject
are countless, but even thought "nobody" SOUNDS indefinite, it really is
quite specific.
Quvatlh! what a simple seeming concept! But grokking the verb suffixs just
baffles me sometimes! All this before my first [qavIn yuch je] of the day!
