Assignment 2 Isolate the morphemes for the following forms of Classical Nahuatl (an Uto-Aztecan language spoken in Mexico). Sometimes in a language, such as Nahuatl, the lack of an overt morpheme has meaning. Some of the examples in 1-21, then, will have an element of meaning for which no phonetically realized morpheme is present. Represent these phonetically empty morphemes in the appropriate spaces below with Ø (the symbol used by linguists to indicate such morphemes). A colon following a vowel indicates that the vowel is long. Nahuatl Form English Gloss 1. nicho:ka “I cry” 2. nicho:kani “I am crying” 3. ankochinih “You (pl.) are sleeping” 4. tikochih “We sleep” 5. kochiya “He was sleeping” 6. kwi:kas “He will sing” 7. ankochiyah “You (pl.) were sleeping” 8. nicho:kas “I will cry” 9. cho:kayah “They were crying” 10. tikochi “You (sg.) sleep” 11. ancho:kah “You (pl.) cry” 12. tikochis “You (sg.) will sleep” 13. ticho:kayah “We were crying” 14. cho:ka “He cries” 15. kochini

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
