We’ve seen one example of this in the article about variants of the {law’ /
puS} formula nIqolay Q referred to:

*  QuchlIj vIl law'be' QuchwIj vIl puSbe'*

   your forehead isn't ridgier than my forehead. (HQ 13.1:10)

Note that {-be’} appears on both {law’} and {puS}.

That's not an example of what he was asking for. He would want the {-be'}
on {vIl} above.

At another thread, I wrote the sentence:

{tlhIngan mu'tlheghvam tIqbe' law' DIvI' Hol 'elaDya' Hol qoj mu'tlhegh
tIqbe' puS}

With the intented meaning "this klingon sentence isn't longer than the
greek and/or english sentence".

I would like to ask whether the {tIqbe'} is an acceptable verb to be placed
in the slot of the law' puS construction.

Can we use there a verb carrying suffixes ?
