RE: QoghIj 'Iw nIjmoHHey SIQpu' quchoywI'

> Subject: QoghIj 'Iw nIjmoHHey SIQpu' quchoywI'

nIj is a verb.  It looks like you're tying to use it as a verb; and you're
using both verb and noun suffixes on it.

quch is "kidnap".  You want qoch "partner".

cha'maH wa' Hu'  does work; we also have the word  ret "time period ago".
wej Hogh ret  ...
Both work.

Even tho half of my ancestors on both sides have died from stroke, I don't
know the actual medical occurence.  I sure someone else could comment on
describing a stroke before I could look it up on the net.

vI- is [I-it].  "I caused it, the previous sentence, to be very unhappy."
Remember Object-Verb-Subject.  But before you flip this around, 'e' can only
be the object.  You can try words like wanI' or ghu'.
muQuchHa'qu'moH wanI'.
Or you could just simply say, jI'IQ.

You have no verb in this sentence.  bogh "born"
wejmaH Soch ben bogh.

jIQeHchoH.  "I became angry."
If you want to keep the longer description,
jIQeHchoH  bong 'e' vIchaw'.  "I accidentally permitted that I became

jISeH'eghbe'.  jIQeHchoH.  "I did not control myself.  I became angry."

jIQeHchoH  'e' vIbotlaHbe'.  "I was not able to prevent that I became

The klingon doesn't imply the [re-] on re-establish.  It is just "
order to establish my honor"; which I think still works.  You could add the
suffix -qa', vIcherqa'meH.

-wI' is used in reference to beings capable of using language.  A language
itself doesn't speak, so we would use -wIj.

You are doing good.
