It might be time for you to try to work past the rearrangement crutch that
janSIy offered you.  It has served you well so far, but it looks like it's
now getting in the way when you try to use complex sentences.  You've
probably done enough simple sentences to have a reasonably good feel for
the proper word order in Klingon, without having to go through the
intermediate step of composing a grammatically correct "backwards" sentence
in English.
