Don't forget about *chavatlh'ben HIq*/two century old ale/ from /Power 
Klingon./ The time words only tell you when a verb happens when they 
come at the beginning of a sentence as a time expression.

Technically, *cha'leS pItSa' vIvut* could mean either /I will cook pizza 
two days from now/ or /I will cook two-days-from-now pizza,/ but the 
latter obviously makes no sense, so no one will interpret it that way.
