Since I'm a beginner I lack the knowledge to answer this question, but I was thinking on the possibility of making a whole sentence the object of *qa'*:

*pu' DIlo'chugh, maQap. yan DIlo'chugh, maluj 'e' qa'* (*If we use phasers, we'll win. It replaces that if we use swords, we'll lose* or something like *Instead of losing if we use swords, we'll win if we use phasers)

I suppose it's completely wrong, but I would like to know why in order to improve my understanding of the language :-) Thank you!
