Others were using /DoS/ to mean "object," so I went along with this, though
it's not "official."

"Word for saying sentences aren't 'Definite sentences which have objects.'
A so-called target can follow a word for saying or a so-called target can
precede a word for saying. One never uses /'e'/ or /net/ if /neH/ is the
main verb."

In other words,

"Sentences with words of saying aren't used in Sentence as Object
constructions.  The 'object' can actually come before the word of saying or
can follow it.  You never use /'e'/ or /net/ if the main verb is /neH/."
