I'm afraid I can't understand this.

We have the sentence {jagh luwampu'bogh 'ej lujonpu'bogh qarDaSngan
luQaHpu' romuluSngan}.

At this sentence, the {romuluSngan} is obviously plural as the {lu-} on the
{luQaHpu'} indicates, and the {QaH} needs to have a singular object. Also,
due to the {lu-} on each of the verbs of the {-bogh} clause, the
{qarDaSngan} needs to be plural and the {jagh} singular.

I think that the only meaning which could be produced by the above is "the
romulans helped the enemy which the cardassians hunted and captured"

Am I missing something here ?

Other than that, I'd love to read your opinion with regards to the original
question of this thread.
