Well, sure, if you add that extra unsuffixed verb in there as a main verb
then it works fine. But, as I said, without it there isn't a main verb. Two
of the three in the original "template" have -bogh, and the other has -meH,
so a fourth verb is necessary to make it a sentence.

It doesn't mean anything sensible to me. You've left off the word that the
-meH is being connected to. We should all know that -meH is a *verb* suffix
and doesn't fit on nouns. But what I read -- and what I'm still reading --
is "verb-meH'ed noun". The "'ed" is confusing, but after the subsequent
explanation I understand it to mean a verb with -meH modifying the noun.
