*mID HubmeH Sa', yo' Hoch lochbogh nawlogh ngeHpu'.
*/To defend the colony, the general has sent a squadron, a fraction of 
the entire fleet./

*mangghommaj Sangpu' jagh. majeghnIS.
*/The enemy has obliterated our army. We must surrender.
/*bo'Degh'a' Dalo'. QaSmaj lochwI' mach HoHpu'. yap noDmeH HoSmaj.
*/You exaggerate. They have killed a small fraction of our troops. We 
have the strength to retaliate./

I might even expect something like this:
**

*HochHom Dujmaj Qaw'pu' jagh: wej loch cha'.
*/The enemy has destroyed two-thirds of our ships.
/(Literally, "The enemy has destroyed most of our ships: two-thirds.")
