In addition to that, talking about ambiguity,

>> qatlh wej mu'tlheghvam vImughpu' ?

I was wondering which three sentences he was talking about. :-)

And for the topic, don't forget TKW, p. 189:

{nobmey qembogh yIrIDnganpu''e' yIvoqQo'.}
"Don't trust Yridians who bring gifts."

Which uses the -'e' suffix to avoid ambiguity, but does a prefix error.
