A relative clause is just a complete sentence with *-bogh* added to the
end of the verb.
*nIrur loDpu'*/Men resemble you./
*nIrurbogh loDpu'*/men who resemble you/
The entire relative clause gets used as a noun phrase in another sentence.
*jatlhpu' SoSoy nIrurbogh loDpu' vIghombej */Momma said I will certainly
meet men who resemble you./
The verb is not prepositive or postpositive; it simply sits between any
object and subject as usual.
