Here's a clearer edit where she says this line:

This tells us two things:
1. The person stolen from is marked with {-vo'} when using the verb {nIH}.
2. {bup} can (contextually) refer to ending a relationship with a person.

Also, I forgot to mention in my previous email how impressive Okrand's work
was, but also when a nightmare it must've been when the director showed him
the finished cut of the film and asked him to re-dub it!
