Does the line {wej nuq Dayugh 'e' vISov} that comes later have the same problem, or is it okay because {nuq Dayugh} is a valid question, and I don’t know the answer yet?

Also, I realized that {nuq Dayugh wej 'e' vISov} works better metrically, but I’m not sure if it works grammatically (or, for that matter, if the original ordering does.)

{Hap Dayughbogh wej vISov} probably works; {wej Hap Dayughbogh vISov} does too in case {wej} can’t go between the object and the verb, but is less favorable metrically.
