  nuqDaq ghaH Hergh ngevwI''e' 
  Where is the chemist? (TNK)

Another example from TalkNow! is:

  nuqDaq ghaH ngevwI''e' 
  Where is the shop? (TNK)
On the other hand a {Hergh QaywI'} "pneumatic hypo" (also called a hypospray and hyposyringe in Trek) is a medical device, lit. "thing which transfers medicine".
