RE: Enough ( Hell Yeah! )

> SuStel je Hoch,

/je/, /joq/, & /ghap/ (the noun connecting words) go at the end of the list
of the nouns they are connecting.
SuStel Hoch je

/net/ is the pronoun, which refers to the previous sentence, that is used
when the subject is unspecified.  (TKD p66)
When you have a subject, 'e' is used.

DaH 'e' vIQoy vIneH  "I want to here that now."
It's not really what we want here.  To get closer we could probably use a
relative clause. (-bogh)

"You don't need to take it from nobody"
Does this mean he needs to take it from somebody?

The english says "anybody", instead of "nobody".  We have /vay'/ "anybody".

Since you are talking metaphorically here, -vo' is probably OK; but remember
that -Daq and -vo' refer to the physical realm of motion.

-oy is a noun suffix.
And I'm not sure why you have two /wI'/.

/ghom/ isn't a suffix.  I'm not sure what you're trying for.

That second word is  tu'HomI'raH.  It has an I (eye), not an l (ell).
Klingon syllables are CVC (Consonant-Vowel-Consonant) or CV
(Consonant-Vowel); with this you can not have'... in a word.
