*jIghungchoHDI' jISop 'e' Dalegh
jISop jIghunchoHDI' 'e' Dalegh*
/You see me eat when I become hungry./

*jISoptaH mInDu'lIj DapoSmoHDI' 'e' Dalegh
jISoptaH 'e' Dalegh mInDu'lIj DapoSmoHDI'*
/When you open your eyes, you see me eating./

Now, for sanity's sake, I probably wouldn't embed the dependent clause 
in the middle of these sentences like this, but there's no actual rule 
preventing me from doing so. And all of these sentences contain some 
kind of ambiguity, but "might be ambiguous" is not a reason for 
something to be ungrammatical.
