Here, Okrand had the chance to answer the question of what happens when the
verb ({Qap}) to which {rIntaH} is attached has a subject. He chose to avoid
answering it by putting {qeylIS} after {'e' Sov} instead.

The {'e'} here appears to apply to {Qap rIntaH} and not just to {rIntaH}
(or just to {Qap}).
