Etymology 2[edit]

  1. (personal prefix, reflexive) Used to form the first-person singular reflexive of transitive verbs: myself. For certain verbs, this imparts an intransitive sense rather than a strictly reflexive one.
    titītza (to stretch something)ninotitītza (I stretch (myself))
    itta (to seesomething)ninotta (I see myself, I look at myself)
    tolīnia (to bother someone, to make suffer)ninotolīnia (I suffer, I am bothered)
Usage notes[edit]

As with the other reflexive prefixes and tla-, this prefixes causes deletion of initial i in verbs such as itta or ilpia, with the exception of verbs beginning with ih- such as ihquiti.
