Re: multiple N-ns5 in the "header area"

canon says:

>reH latlh qabDaq qul tuj law' Hoch tuj puS.

maybe i have already asked this... but this sentence seems strange to 
me. i read it as "always - on someone else's face - fire is the 
hottest". i think i can decompose the sentence this way and analise 
only the end: /qul tuj law' Hoch tuj puS/. it means "fire is the 
hottest", which means that there is nothing hotter than fire. do you 
know i mean? the whole sentence means "there is nothing hotter than 
fire on someone elses face", which implies that on the own face there 
can be something hotter than fire. this is not the meaning of the 
translation "the fire is always hotter on someone else's face".
