Right. In the English sentence "Every time I tickle a dog, it bites me,"
the phrase "every time" is being used like a subordinating conjunction.
Klingon doesn't have subordinating conjunctions. It has Type 9 verb endings
instead. Either use those, or use two sentences that make sense together,
like {/dog/mey vIqotlh. reH muchop.}
