<body class='hmmessage'><div dir='ltr'>ghItlhpu' André, jatlh:<br>&gt; I found a sentence in the paq'batlh that I think might either contain a syntactical error, a new usage of a verb or simply a<div><div dir="ltr"><div><div dir="ltr"><div><div><div><div><div>&gt; structure that I cannot parse. It's on page 144-5, Canto 16, 2nd verse:<br><span style="font-size:12pt;">&gt;</span></div><div><span style="font-size:12pt;">&gt; tlhIngan wo' nur ghob je</span></div>&gt; HoSmoH quvvam<br></div>&gt; che'DI' molor nur ghob je pujchoHpu'<br>&gt;</div>&gt; With it, I restore pride and values<br>&gt; Of the Klingon Empire, for under Molor,<br></div>&gt; They have grown weak and faint.<br><br>I'm with janSIy. Though in origin this may well be an error of word order, it still reads well if you treat the third line of the stanza as meaning "when Molor's dignity and ethics ruled, they [molor nur ghob je, tlhIngan wo' nur ghob je joq] became weak".<br><br>QeS<br></div></div></div></div></div> 		 	   		  </div></body>
