"Embedded sentence"?  I would expect that phrase to refer to the  
pronoun {'e'} here.

{DaH} is at the *beginning* of its sentence.  {jIQongchoH} is one  
sentence.  {DaH 'e' vIHech} is another.  Most people -- Marc Okrand  
included -- do not separate sentences with punctuation in a Sentence  
As Object construction.
