everything has it's "pulsing" rhythm (-> /rut/ ?). it's important

for example, when i write this e-mail, i write it continiously, even 
if i from time to time watch the clock or scratch my head.

how do we say "street"/"road"/"path"/"way"?

/'och/? /rav/? /chob/?

is it because a word ending in "-Daq" acts like a header?
