pujchuqmoH
they weaken each other (st.k)

pujnISmoH
he/she needs to weaken [somebody] (st.k)

jaghpu'ra' bopujmoHtaHvIS, ghur tuqmeyraj quv. 
Honor will rise in your houses as you bring your
 enemies to their knees. MKE

st.k (11/97):  This is really {puj} "be weak" and the suffix {-moH} "cause" (thus weaken is "cause to be weak"). Since {-moH} is a Type 4 suffix, if a suffix of Type 1, 2, or 3 is to be used (such as {-chuq} "each other" [Type 1] or {-nIS} "need" [Type 2]), it would precede the Type 4 {-moH}; for example, {pujchuqmoH} "they weaken each other" or {pujnISmoH} "he/she needs to weaken [somebody]".


mu'mey Sar:

puj  		be weak (v)
puj  		weakness (n)
pujwI'  	weakling (n)

HoS 		be strong (v)
HoSghaj 	be powerful, be potent (v)
