nhiyawwin is known as a polysynthetic language, meaning the language is structured in word sentences. There are bits of meanings to what may look like one word but is actually a full sentence when translated into English. These bits of meanings are called morphemes and this course will study how these word sentences are created and pieced together to make sense.
