De'vID and charghwI' I still can't understand this.

Suppose every klingon in the room knows that kronos is surrounded by aliens.

And suppose that gowron knows that on monday of all those aliens the
romulans will be the ones who attack.

So he says {DaSjaj HIv romuluSnganpu'}. He doesn't use the {-'e'} on
romuluSnganpu' because the context is clear.

Now suppose another scenario where although the romulans usually don't
attack, they will join in on the assault but without gowron specifying when
the assault will happen.

So gowron says {vabDot HIv romuluSnganpu'}.

Now suppose that this "unexpected/surprising/counterintuitive" attack will
happen on monday.

Now gowron says {DaSjaj vabDot HIv romuluSnganpu'}.

Isn't the last sentence in a way the sum of the previous two? Doesn't it
combine the previous two sentences?

So can't it mean too "even on monday the romulans will attack"?
