That’s right.  AFAIK there are only four polysyllabic verbs known:  {ghIpDIj} court martial, {He'So’} stink, {HoSghaj} be powerful, {nughI'} twist knuckle into someone's head.  Hmm… perhaps “bisyllabic verbs” would be better.  Did any more appear in the last two or three qep’a’mey and qepHommey?

And were all verbs at the beginning monosyllabic? (speaking of verbs TKD only says: *the stressed syllable is usually the verb itself*).

Unknown, but almost all verbs are monosyllabic. There are, what, only three or four exceptions?
