We say:

puH Duj
muD Duj
bIQ Duj

However, we say:


And there is the {paq Duj} too, which since we don't have any of those in
greece, I don't know what it is, nor do I care to find out either..

Now, from the examples above ({paq Duj}, whatever the ghe''or it is,
aside), it shows that seemingly/apparently in Ca'Non, when a ship is
described on the basis of *where* it travels, the two words are written
separately, but when a ship is specified on the basis of its' mission, then
the two words are smooshed together..

So, the question arises:

If we want to say "love ship" (as ridiculous as it may sound), do we need
to write {parmaqqay Duj} or {parmaqqayDuj} ? Or if we need to say "food
ship", do we write {Soj Duj} or {SojDuj} ?

Or is it, that only god (i.e. maltz), has the right to be smooshing words
together ?
