*tlhIch purwI'*/smoke inhaler:/ the subject of *pur* inhales something.
The English might be ambiguous; the Klingon is not. *tlhIch purmeH
jan*/device for inhaling smoke/ might be a pipe, but it might also be a
cigarette or a bong.
Whenever you use a pronoun as a verb, any noun phrases that go on the
right side of the pronoun must have *-'e'* attached to them.
*qech 'oH Hov leng'e'. qech mIllogh bIH much wa'DIch'e', puq poH veb'e',
logh Hop tengchaH Hut'e', latlhmey'e' je.*
With the understanding that you're talking about these things being
*qech mIllogh* /visual depictions of an idea./ *mIllogh* means a visual
depiction, not an abstract representation (unless it's a visual one).
