Query on -choHmoHwI'

qe'San \(Jon Brown\) (qeSan@btinternet.com) [KLI Member]



Can verbs+ like the following lamHa'choHmoH "clean" (cause to become un-dirty)  as used on p170 TKD* also take a -wI' suffix to make it "cleaner" (thing/person who causes (something) to become undirty.
*TKD p170: Where can I get my shoes cleaned? - nuqDaq waqwIj vIlamHa'choHmoH

In my efforts to use Klingon everyday at least in my head I was thinking about "I clean my teeth" which I assumed would be 

    Ho'Du'wIj vIlamHa'choHmoH

But then wondered whatever method I used was I using a lamHa'choHmoHwI' 
    or because of the -Ha' should that be a  lamHa'choHmoHghach



Accepting that I was actually cleaning my teeth I started thinking about Klingon teeth I wondered if rather than cleaning they might shine them if they did anything at all.
