Does it make sense? Maybe. Not sure. I don't like all the experiments 
people do with *'op,* apparently with English or some other language in 
mind. Is it valid? Dunno.

Try *qagh luSop ghot puS* /Few people eat qagh, /*qagh luSop ghot puS 
Dep puS je*/Few people or beings eat qagh,/ or maybe even *qagh luSop 
puSwI'*/Those who are few eat qagh/ (though this one wouldn't be my 
first choice). Or *motlhHa' qagh Soplu'*/Qagh is not usually eaten,/ 
*pIjHa' qagh Soplu'*/Qagh is eaten infrequently,/ *qagh SopwI' puS law' 
qagh SopQo'wI' puS puS*/Qagh eaters are fewer than qagh non-eaters./
