[tlhIngan Hol] Placement of the adverb

So, if I understand correctly, the grammatically correct sentence is {paq
vIlaDtaHvIS, pIj jIHagh}. Right ?

Because I was wondering which of these two sentences was right, and which
was wrong. Although as I understand, placing the {pIj} right before the
{paq vIlaDtaHvIS}, isn't actually wrong, but rather something which would
occur more often while speaking as opposed to writing.

If I understand correctly your reply, in order to be grammatically correct,
the adverb has to be placed right before the verb to which it refers (in
our examples the {jIHagh}).

Are these conclusions correct ?
