Doty commenting on canon examples involving {-choH}:

 

>All of these examples have
<-choH> attached to a verb

quality (often called in

>marks an entrance into a
specific state.

>The exception to this is for
verbs of motion, but

that <-choH> goes with verbs

><-choH>? With verbs that
actually describe an action 

>(i.e., active verbs).  

 

One
of the examples listed by Voragh had {'uch} in it.

Another one had {qaS} it it. Surely, both verbs
refer 

to
actions:

 

   wa'
jaj 'etlh 'uchchoHlaH tlhIngan puqloD 

   jajvetlh
loD nen moj.

     The
son of a Klingon is a man 

     the
day he can first hold a blade.

177)
