If I wanted to say, "I was very, very drunk," would it be, "jIchechqu'qu'"?

I'm pretty confident that you can't put a -qu' on a -qu' though we haven't specifically been told that. I think I would probably opt for -chu' if I felt that strongly about it.

Query whether you can use -qu' and -chu' together, possibly in different orders, thus producing gradations of meaning, such as:

jIchech: I am drunk.

jIchechqu': I am very drunk.

jIchechchu': I am totally drunk.

jIchechqu'chu': I am totally wasted.

jIchechchu'qu': I challenged General Martok to a drinking contest and it didn't end well.
