[tlhIngan Hol] Reversing the order of {-vo'}

ok, I understand the change of meaning with regards to the aforementioned
{chegh} example.

But now, lets look at another example..

*> naDevvo' vaS'a'Daq majaHlaH'a'** can we get to the Great Hall*
*> from here?*

If we wrote instead {vaS'a'Daq naDevvo' majaHlaH'a'}, then would that mean
"can we get to the great hall from here", or "are we able to go away from
here, with the going taking place in the vicinity of the great hall, but in
a direction away from here" ?

Could I write instead:

{Qo'noSDaq tera'vo' jIchegh}, with the meaning remaining the same ?

*chegh* is one of those words whose object has a locative sense
as revealed in the very message you're looking at. Therefore, *Qo'noSDaq
jIchegh* means *on Kronos, I return (to someplace unspecified).* The
meaning changes.
