Kropf's dictionary was constructed on this plan. when standing alone. The auxiliary iikut't. stems were originally adverbial or interjectional particles and in some instances remain in use still with ukutl. differing absolutely from that of the suffix-using English. they have their limitations and these adverbial and interjectional particles serve in the place of gestures or to the accompaniment of gestures to widen out still further the application of the verb iikuti [see uhi-Ti 4 (a) and (b)]. however. Primary stems are those which retain their final vowel in the The great majority of these primary simple verbal forms which are derived from them*. e. but are always made to carry a definite idea in any particular instance of their use.
