The mission of the H-Nahuatl network is to provide a simple medium where scholars interested in studying the Nahua or Nahuatl (Aztecs or Aztec language) can go to be in communication with others. The network will accept postings in English, Spanish, Nahuatl, and French. Historically the network has addressed issues relevant to understanding nuances of Nahuatl, the grammar and structure of the language. It also serves as a place where the general public can inquire about specific issues of the Nahua. Lastly, it provides a forum wherein scholars can announce their research plans and seek assistance from others in the field.

   When I looked at Chuck Lindsey's word, my first reaction was that

it was probably a misprint.  That was because reduplications don't

repeat anything after the vowel portion of the syllable.  It turns

out that that generalization stands up -- in spite of the occurrence

of "...tzintzin...".  Andrews points out (p. 296 [at least]) that

"piltzin" is lexicalized and embedded in "-tzin", so "-tzintzin"
