Oh, wait, here's a better one: *Hegh tlhIngan Segh 'ej maHemtaH 'e'
wIHech.* This one is clearly *[Hegh tlhIngan Segh] 'ej [maHemtaH 'e'
wIHech]* and not *[Hegh tlhIngan Segh 'ej maHemtaH] 'e' wIHech.* Both
the first *[Hegh tlhIngan Segn] *and second *[maHemtaH 'e' wIHech]*
parts must be properly formed /sentences,/ so *maHemtaH 'e' wIHech* must
be a sentence.
