[tlhIngan Hol] use of {'el} with {-moH}

I freely admit that my example is wrong… that’s why I suggested someone else explain the subtleties of {‘elmoH} – which are frequently discussed on this list.  I added an unnecessary comma merely to separate the two parts of the sentence, but brackets would have done as well.  ({pa’} is probably not the best example as it means both “room” and “there(abouts)”, the latter never taking {-Daq}.)

So, the following sentence which voragh wrote:

Is wrong, and should be {pa'Daq, dogvaD mo' lu'elmoH} ?

If I'm correct about the {-moH/-vaD} thing (and I like to think that I am, though Voragh has far more canon knowledge than I do), then yes, his example was wrong, and {pa'Daq dogvaD mo' lu'elmoH} would be correct. (The comma is probably unnecessary.)
