{DI’ruj} could be an abstract concept like the time words {tuch} “future, the future (as a whole)”,  {pa'logh} “past, the past (as a whole)” or {DaHjaj} “today” (which also appears in a NOUN + NOUN phrase like {DaHjaj gheD} "catch of the day" (lit. "today's prey").  Although nouns, I wouldn’t put {-Daq} on any of them.

DI'ruj 'oH 'IDnar'e'! :D

I don't think {DI'ruj} is a location word like {bIng} or {Dung}, but it could be used as a location just as {Duj} or {ghop} could be.

I'm curious to know how to use {DI'ruj} in a sentence. Can we use it to make existential statements? For instance, would something like {DI'rujDaq 'IDnar tu'be'lu'} be interpreted in the sense of "Magic doesn't exist/is fictional"? Is {DI'ruj} a location, can it even take a {-Daq}? Does {'IDnar ngaSbe' DI'ruj} work for the same idea?
