Is this meant to be a noun-noun construction? That doesn't work, because 
you can't put a type 5 noun suffix on the first noun of a noun-noun 
construction.

If it's meant to be two components of part of a larger sentence, like 
*cheS'e', Sopbogh Hoch vIlegh*/As for rabbits, I see all which eat,/ 
remember that Okrand told us that using a type 5'd topic at the 
beginning of a sentence that isn't a subject or object would be highly 
marked. It's basically not a real option.

The only thing that *cheS'e' Sopbogh Hoch* would normally be interpreted 
as is /rabbit which everyone eats./ *cheS'e' Sopbogh Hoch vIlegh*/I see 
the rabbit which everyone eats./
