​Using {-chu'} seems like it would mean "fear of verbing
perfectly/clearly", rather than "perfect/clear fear of verbing":
{yajvIpchu'ghach} "fear of perfect understanding" (e.g. an "ignorance is
bliss" mentality, or a mindset you might encounter in a Cthulhu Mythos
{Hay'vIpchu'ghach} "fear of dueling to the death"
Or perhaps even {muchvIpchu'be'ghach} "stage fright, stage anxiety, fear of
screwing up during a performance"
Then again, we know the verbal suffixes don't always apply in the order
they appear in.
