/je/, when used as "also" in this manner, follows the verb it is modifying.
Verbs always have to have a prefix. When it looks like there is no prefix, it
is really the null prefix which means "him/her/it [to] him/her/it", etc. Refer
to the chart in TKD on p33.
But before we choose a prefix here, let's look at something else...
lugh - "be correct". This is intransitive. You do not "be correct"
something. We need to add the suffix -moH. lughmoH "cause to be correct".
The object is "errors" (them). The subject is, well, "you" is implied. If we
use -Da, this would be a statement. To make it a command you have to go to the
chart on p34. Here we find "you [to] them" is tI-.
Qaghmey tIlughmoH "Cause the errors to be correct."
Because the prefix implies a plural object, the plural suffix is optional.
Qagh tIlughmoH "Cause the errors to be correct."
Qagh tIlughmoH je "Also cause the errors to be correct."
