  1. That was very interesting! I met other languages that make use of prefixes and suffixes in verbs, even infixes, for example Tagalog and Finnish. Not that I think they are in family with Nahuatl, but I find it interesting that the way of constructing language is not necessarily unique to different parts of the world. They can develop parallel(ly?).
