You can rely on an unstated deixis, as Okrand suggests in his interview 
mentioning it. Something like: *DIS Dab cha' qanwI'. Sor Hop tu'lu'. 
Hoch jaj Sor leng wa' qanwI'.*/Two old people lived in a cave. There was 
a faraway tree. Every day one old person would travel to the tree./ Not 
very good, perhaps, but it's just meant to illustrate the point. *Hop* 
is relative to whatever you're talking about. So talk about something, 
then describe it as *Hop.*
