KGT p49 says that -chu', when used with some verbs of fighting, implies that
the fight is to the death.  This doesn't work for all fighting verbs, and
looking at it now I don't think it works that way with Daw'; but that's what
I was aiming for; they kill their enemies, and they die doing it.  Hmm, that
might also get the -neS suffix (KGT p49).  Daw'chu'neSwI'.  But I admit this
is not the best choice.

I'm guessing you mean HoH, not HeH.

"Why, because I think <cause to kill> <murder>, I be interesting the

Qub is "think", not "think about".
Your english mentions the word "opinion", for which we have vuD.
"target" DoS.

qatlh ghIjwI'pu' DoS mumojmoH vuDwIj?

Because Daj is a "be" verb, a stative verb, we can probably still put it on

qatlh ghIjwI'pu'(vaD) DoS Daj mumojmoH vuDwIj?

Without -vaD, /ghIjwI'pu' DoS/ is a noun-noun for "the terrorists' target".
With -vaD, /ghIjwI'pu'vaD DoS/ is "target for terrorists".

Huh?  I'm not sure what you mean here.

Oh?  neghvaD <chotwI'> luper nughlIj?

Object-Verb-Subject.  What's not being the same?

Why do you have -moH on what I guess is suppose to be HoH?  "cause to kill".

vay' HoHlaH nuv 'ej chotbe'.

It could but it would make much sense, "I am an army and a sergeant".

or:  qamawbe' vIneH
or:  qamaw vIneHbe'

And now vuDwIj.
