It's a question that involves many suffix combinations. Even those 
suffixes that explicitly modify other suffixes (e.g., *-be'*) sometimes 
seem to modify entire verbs or entire sentences.

*qamejnISmoH:* do I need to cause you to leave, or do I cause you to

*SuvwI'pu' qan tu'lu'be' *(TKW)*'ach QuvlIjDaq yIH tu'be'lu'jaj* (PK)
