Hi all-

How does one convey the notion of "to something"?

For example, I want to say Travel to your new home.    juHraj chu' is  your new home.   And boleng is you (pl) travel it.  Does the notion of "to" automatically conveyed here, or would i need some other structure to convey it?   I know an object being given to a third party makes use of the suffix -vaD on the third party, but in my case there is no third party.

The object of leng is the destination. This was explained in HolQeD 7:4.

The relevant portion:
Quote
MO: {leng} works like {jaH}. These are all okay:

{yuQ vIleng} or {yuQDaq vIleng}
I travel to the planet

{yuQvo' jIleng}
I roam away from the planet

{yuQDaq jIleng}
I roam (around/about) on the planet

This is not okay: {yuQ jIleng}

Ah, -Daq and -vo',  of course!  I knew i was missing something.

But the quote you have there seems to contradict itself.  It first says {yuQ vIleng}  is ok.  But the last line says it's not ok.

Thanks!

The last line says yuQ jIleng with jI- (note: not vI-) is not okay. This is because jI- indicates "no object".
