ghItlh 'ISqu':

SIv DloraH:

Sounds like:
   say: {po'wI'pu' vuD} "experts' opinion"
   not: {po'wI'pu' vuDchaj} "experts' their opinion"

But in a normal sentence, like the one 'ISqu' talks about, a noun with a possessivve suffix is like any other noun.

{pongDaj Sovbe' loD.} That's not wrong, is it?
