For those who haven't seen it, a "faster" example from the {paq'batlh}:

  nom leng Hun nom lengqu' lut 
  Stories travel faster than a *khrun* (PB)

With that in mind, there is this sequence from qepHom 2012:

  nom leng DujlIj 
  Your ship travels fast. (qepHom 2012)

  nom leng Duj Daghajbogh 
  The ship that you have travels fast. (qepHom 2012)

  tInqu' nom lengbogh DujlIj 
  Your fast ship is very big.
  ("Your ship that travels fast is very big") (qepHom 2012)

  nom lengbogh DujlIj vIlegh 
  I see your fast ship.
  ("I see your ship that travels fast") (qepHom 2012)
