paquisipakʷisivtouch the chest?Neqerota hùe tota napaqùisisota, mucuma, numa aboma acorosota enemìta, ...kneeling on the ground, with the hands on the chest, and the eyes turned toward heaven...1627 Cat 1.2This verb at first looks like paqua 'touch' plus the benefactive -si. But as the example shows, paquisi precedes the causative -so. Because normal examples of the benefactive follow the causative, the final -isi of this verb probably has some other source.Tentativecfpaquapaqùisi
