*-choH* means a state, as described by the verb, begins. It doesn't 
allow you to toggle back and forth between states. *QeHchoH* means only 
/become angry,/ not /cease to be angry./ To go the other way, you need 

*maQeHchuqchoHmoH* /we get each other into an angry state
/*maQeHchuqmoH*/we are the cause of each other's anger/
