"But you had needed to wage war." ?

> tlhIngan Hol ghojwI'pu' Hoch maH

Without a verb, /maH/ must act as the verb, and with this word order I get:
"We are all of klingon students."

For "We all are klingon students" I would switch /Hoch/ and /maH/.
ghojwI' maH Hoch'e'.
But this is only if we can say "we all are".
This isn't "all of us" because maH is acting as the verb; so we don't have
it as part of a noun-noun.

> 'e' wIqaw potlh.

wI- implies the "we" are the subject; but you put /potlh/ in the subject's
"We something important remember that."
If /potlh/ is being used as a verb, then you have two verbs.

Hmm, are you saying "It is important to remember that we are all students."?

ghojwI' maH Hoch'e'  'e' wIqawnISqu'.  ((potlh ghu'vam) or (potlh Qu'vam))

> reH maQochbe'be'.

Two [be']'s together.  I can accept multiple be' when there are suffixes
between them; each be' modifying it's preceeding suffix.
I understand what's being said, and I'm sure a klingon would understand it;
but is it something a native would say?  We don't know.  We haven't seen any
evidence yet.

> rut maQochnIS.
> 'ach jItay'.

"But I am together"?
Oh wait, do you mean [tay], without the [']?
"But I am civilized".  That makes more sense.

Noun suffix -'a' is a type 1 suffix.  -pu' is type 2.
