Well, I was probably thinking in Spanish. In Spanish we can say "I had to think about something" when a situation *makes* you think about it, you cannot avoid it. I guess *-nIS* only work with real need or obligation, so maybe *'ej jIHvaD wanI' tlhaQ luqawmoHpu'*? By the way, the *prefix trick* is also possible with verbs with *-moH*, right?

Yes, I spelled that wrong, thank you!
