I think a good example is {chay' jura'}, literally "how do you command
us?", subtitled as "what are your orders?" in Star Trek III.

I think many beginners, if they were asked to translate "what are your
orders?", would come up with {nuq bIH [order]meylIj'e'} and get stuck on
missing a noun for "order, command".
