Title: The Function of Verb Prefixes in Southwestern Otomi
Written By: Henrietta Andrews
URL: http://www.ethnologue.com/show_product.asp?isbn=9780883126059
Series Title: Publications in Linguistics #115
Description:

Discusses how Otomí verb prefixes include deixis in their function.

States that a key element to understanding the makeup of Otomí verbs is the role of deixis in the verb and elsewhere in the sentence. Discusses how every independent Otomí sentence is grounded in reality through deixis, and every dependent sentence depends upon deictic grounding in sentences around it.
