Hm, my TKD lists -Daj as "his, her, its".

>/jaq/ "be bold" is a verb.  You're using it as an adverbial.  Can't do that.

Mwuah, I meant {jaq} as "be bold", as in, "to be bold and to go to the 
unknown". But I could have better used -taHvIS indeed.

Hm... I'm not sure? Well... Sovlu'be' is something like "it is not known", 
right? So I figured Sovlu'be'ghach would be like 'being not known'-ness... 
unknownness... hm... no, you're right, that doesn't really work here.

Hm. {Daq ghoSlu'be'ta'bogh}, smart... Ok, thanks for the help!! I'll try to 
remember all this...
