No, sorry, was not. And I just checked my own notes, so I might have 
confused this with something else. HIvqa' veqlargh.

Indeed, why should it not?

If you like to avoid the strange {law' law'}, you might want to consider 
the recently disscovered verb {vItlh}. It was used in a phrase in DSC:

{Heghmey DISIQpu'. 'a DIvI' Hegh vItlh law' Heghmaj vItlh puS.}
