The second part of the worksheet asks the student to tell whether the given noun is repeated or inuulit. Note that the root word (which is a noun) or part of the root word (usually the first two syllables) is repeated. These words may also have an affix but they are considered to fall under the inuulit category.
Words such as daldal, siksik, and dingding, although nouns, are not considered to have the structure of inuulit because there are no root words dal, sik, or ding.
The two 20-item worksheets below ask the student to tell whether the noun has an affix (maylapi). If it does, the student is asked to write the root word of the noun.
