All of a sudden something came to my mind.

After reading your explanation, I understand what 'oqranD tries to say in
TKD. So far so good. But doesn't 'oqranD contradict himself with the
{romuluSngan Sambogh 'ej HoHbogh nejwI'}? According to TKD shouldn't it be
{romuluSngan Sambogh nejwI' 'ej HoHbogh}? Or are we to understand it as an
exception/special case?
