jatlhlaw' /ghuy'cha'! /pagh /va!/


<jatlhchuqtaHvIS jupwI' jIH je>

*jatlh* doesn't take the person spoken to as a direct object, so you 
probably can't say *jatlhchuq.* One usually says *ja'chuq,* which 
appears in the dictionary. It's not entirely clear, though.

<chay' tlhIngan Hol jatlhtaHvIS /facepalm/ jatlhlu'>

Don't insert the subordinate clause between the main clause and its 
question word. Also, keep your indefinite subject consistent throughout. 
*tlhIngan Hol jatlhlu'taHvIS chay' /facepalm/ jatlhlu'?*

<'e' ghel ghaH>

Quotations can't be objects of anything but the verbs of saying *jatlh* 
or *ja',* and then must use the special rule that omits *'e'.* To say 
someone asked something, say it in two separate sentences: someone 
asked; someone said... *ghelpu' ghaH; <tlhIngan Hol jatlhlu'taHvIS chay' 
/facepalm/ jatlhlu'?> jatlhpu'.* This goes for /answering/ as well: 
*jIjangpu'; jIjatlhpu' <qabwIj vIweq>.* If /asked/ and /answered/ aren't 
vital to what you're saying, you could just drop that part and just say 
/someone said.../
