'ej Dojmey wID - vInDa'ma' peq. 
He has killed many of our people. 
("and he massacred multitudes - he slaughtered our compatriots") STID

Lieven (11/11/2013):  This word is derived from {Doj} "batch, pile, heap, accumulation" plus {-mey}, the general plural suffix. Even if referring only to beings capable of using language, one would normally not say *{Dojpu'}.

N.B. Do not confuse with the homophonous verb {Doj} "be impressive" nor the noun {Doch} "thing".

luch 		equipment, gear (n)
tep 		cargo, goods (n)
'aH  		paraphernalia (n)
