We have *chev* in a canonical sentence: *'uSDaj chop, chev!* /Chew his 
arm off! /(clipped). The second sentence is presumabbly short for either 
*'oH yIchev*/separate it!/ or *bIH tIchev*/separate them!,/ in which 
case the subject of *chev* is not the thing separated but the cause of 
the separation; the object gets separated.

*chevchuq tlhInganpu' romuluSnganpu'* apparently means /The Klingons and 
the Romulans separate each other./ That is, the Klingons and the 
Romulans both work to make the Klingons and the Romulans move away from 
each other.
