RE: monkey (was: Re: A couple of questions.)

ghoS refers to the act of moving physically.  "Humans coming from monkeys"
is a completely different version of "come".

Do'Ha' is not transitive, it doesn't take an object; therefore can not take
'e'.  You could just tack it on the front as an adverbial; or drop the 'e'
and in a separate sentence say Do'Ha' ghu'vam.
