[tlhIngan Hol] {neH} as in "the only"

To be honest, when I read {puq neH ghaH} I saw, “He wants a child.”

wa’ puq ghaj qaytu’pu’. [Does this really need {neH}?]

latlh puq Hutlh qaytu’pu’.

qongmeS Hutlh.

As for the “only engine”, I’ll let the canon experts reply before I say yet another wrong thing. If the canon actually is {matHa’, DoS jonta’ neH}, it’s already weird, since there’s no verb, unless the real translation is a clipped “I want the engine of the target."

(ghaH, ghaH, -Daj)
