Cahto – English


√0rt(default verb root)At least twice in the Cahto corpus, once in Goddard's Bill Ray texts, once in Loeb's materials from Martina and Lucy Ray, verb forms occur without an explicit root.

In addition, perhaps coincidentally, the form is a future predictive with the -teelee suffix.√0aa(nin)..0be thusbe thusdee-d(ghin) in fire to roastnaahi-(s)..0go back homego back home
