More Information

The subject of this verb is the person aiming something (the object) at something else.
The object of this verb is the thing (e.g. a weapon) being aimed, while the target is marked with -Daq.

This verb is not only restricted to weapons, it can be used for anything facing something else:
For the idea of "face" (orient towards) – The object is the one oriented toward someone or something, and the thing or person being faced is marked with -Daq. With this meaning, this verb is often used with -'egh or -chuq. (qep'a' 2020)

The request for this meaning of "face" was "We must now turn to face the front of the room; Each of these three sculptures faces a different compass direction."

Basic structure:

[target]Daq [object] Qeq [subject]
or:
[target]Daq Qeq'egh [subject/object]

In both cases, the object faces the target.
