[tlhIngan Hol] «jIH je» and variations

I always think of *jIH je* as being tacked on to the end of what someone
else just said. *je* is just acting normally as a noun conjunction. It adds
the person speaking to the subject of the sentence.

That sometimes breaks the rule of *rom* by turning the original subject
into a plural first person subject, or ends up with a redundant *maH jIH je*.
It sometimes tries to conjoin an explicit *jIH* with an elided subject,
which is bizarre. But ignoring the potentially wrong verb prefix and/or the
unspoken first noun, I don't see anything wrong with the order of the words
