Hoch jaj / Hoch jajmey - all days / each day

jaj naQ = naQbogh jaj  "a day which is whole";  as opposed to the astronomical 
phenomena that we have once in a while that gives us a day which is incomplete?

jaj Hoch - all of the day

qaStaHvIS jaj Hoch / qaStaHvIS pem Hoch ...

There were two pies:  naQbogh chab, naQbe'bogh chab.
Fred ate all of one of the pies.  Which pie did he eat?
naQbogh chab Hoch Sop'a'?  naQbe'bogh chab Hoch Sop'a'?
