*-chuq* doesn't allow the use of an object, since the plural subject is 
also the verb's object.

*pImchuqmoH* is just fine for /they made each other different./ You can 
get a clearer feeling for the effect of *-chuq* + *-moH* with a more 
active verb: *HIvchuqmoH */they cause each other to attack./ But you 
can't just stick the target of their attacks in the object position, 
because this is a reflexive verb. You have to use another sentence. For 
example: *HIvchuqmoH; verengan Duj 'oH DoS'e'*/they cause each other to 
attack; the target is the Ferengi ship./
