With ghoS, jaH, etc, the destination is the object. If such a sentence has
a -Daq it describes where, in/on what means, the action takes place.
Qo'noS vIjaH "I go to Kronos"
DujDaq jIjaH "I am on a ship, I am going"
DujDaq Qo'noS vIjaH "I am on a ship, going to Kronos"
Qo'noSDaq jIjaH "I am on Kronos, going (somewhere that is also on Kronos"
Altho, you can put -Daq on the direct object, but you still need to use a
prefix that implies that it is the object/destination.
We have canon:
tIngvo' 'evDaq chanDaq jIlengpu' (HolQeD 8.4)
So what about:
naDevvo' pa'Daq DajaHlaHbe'
Well, TKD p27,28 tells us that naDev and pa' ("there", not "room") never
take -Daq. But I'm wondering, does this mean they never take -Daq when
acting as locatives, but when they're the direct object can they take the
'optional' -Daq. They CAN take -vo'.
naDevvo' pa' DaghoSlaHbe'
"You can not go there from here."
