You can add verb suffixes *when appropriate*.  However, just because  
you can do a thing does not mean it's a good idea.

That would need some pretty specific context in order to be a  
reasonable thing to say.  I can't point to any rules of grammar that  
it violates.  But I will point out that there's nothing ungrammatical  
about {pe'vIl Qong nguvbe'bogh qechmey SuD} either.
