Klingon Question for any speakers out there- possession

I really love Duolingo. Heavy on the French, and have played around with the Spanish and Russian.

I picked up the Klingon dictionary and have played around with it on Duolingo.

Here is the question.

baH'wI' (gunner - take a verb add wI' to essentially to the job of -er in english)

Possession - use the suffix wI (on a being capable of using language (otherwise -wIj).

So MY GUNNER would be baH'wI'wI? (pronounced "bach-wee-wee").

Is this correct. Sounds kind of funny.

HIja'. bIlugh.
Yes. You're correct. But remember the qaghwI' (') on the possession -wI' (but not on baH). And also, note that the syllable does not sound like "wee", but rather like "wit".

The correct spelling is baHwI'wI'. Do not add an extra apostrophe after baH.
