chovnatlhvam Daqellaw':

{chollI'} "it is getting closer"

"it is getting closer" ghItlhpu' Okrand. "it is getting closer to it"
ghItlhbe'pu'. {nuv wejDIch} lo'be'pu'. {nuv paghDIch} lo'be'law'pu'.

naQbe'law' mu'tlheghvam. poQHa'lu'chugh, {DoSDaq [it-none]chollI'} 'oSlaw';
{DoS [it-it]chollI'} 'oSbe'law'.

taH TKD:

--- tagh ---
This word would be used for, i.e., a missile approaching a target, when it
is known that the missile has been aimed at that target. If a missile is
getting closer, but its intended destination is not known, {choltaH} (with
{-taH} "continuous") would be more appropriate.
--- rIn ---

{choltaH} jatlhchugh vay', {DoSHeyDaq choltaH} 'oSlaw'. jatlhwI'Daq
SumnISbe'law' DoSHey.
