{'e' -lu'} is not a permissible construction, unless the {-lu'} is on the
verb {'aq}.

Always, as soon as you find yourself wanting to say {yadda yadda 'e'
*whatever*lu'} you should instead write {yadda yadda net whatever}

Today I am trying to grasp the difference between {net + verb} and {'e' +

The way I understand it is, for example with "Sov"

net Sov = it is common knowledge that
'e' Sovlu' = someone (indefinite) knows that

qama'pu' DIHoHbe' net Sov = It is common knowledge that we don't kill
qama'pu' DIHoHbe' 'e' Sovlu' = It is known / someone knows that we don't
kill prisoners

Similarly with chaw' :
qama'pu' DIHoH net chaw'be' = we are not allowed to kill prisoners
qama'pu' DIHoH 'e' chaw'lu'be' = someone does not allow us to kill prisoners

Am I getting it right ?

Thanks in advance!
