Yes, the word “first” can be used that way in English. Does that mean {wa’DIch} can be used that way in Klingon? One doesn’t make a strong foundation for the other.

Mostly, I just don’t see a reason to step out on the thin ice with {wa’DIch} when {SuvwI’qoq wa’DIch} is clearly available and rock solid, reliably right.
