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.
