Perhaps, the way I'd say the intended meaning in greek, bled through to
english, and then to klingon..

The situation I had in mind, was a boss having a problematic employee,
insisting nevertheless on keeping him, because he's a relative or something.

So, a fed up colleague, says to the boss "why do we cause for us trouble
because of him ?"

Meaning "why do we need to be constantly putting up with him ?"

Of course, one could ask just that..

But I was just wondering with regards to the order in which two nouns, each
with a type-5 suffix, would/could/should be placed.
