So, this means that in the {tlhIH je qanra' puqloD pejatlh} there's an
elided {tlhIH} before the {tlhIH} which is written.

And so this means, that (from now on) we *can* use the conjunction {je}
"and" after just one noun, as long as the elided one is clear from context.

Interesting.. Very interesting.. (three thinking emoji here)
