Na'gifi Fasu'xa derives most of its sensory verbs from the root NIXI- 'face'
(the actual NF word for 'face' is 'ni'xixa').
Thus:
ni'xifi - ear; i'nxifi - to hear
ni'xifu - nose; i'nxifu - to smell
ni'xinu - head; i'nxinu - to think
ni'xipi - word; i'nxipi - to say (primary use); to touch; to use
transmissive senses
ni'xipu - ?information; i'nxipu - to see (primary use); to smell; to hear;
to use receptive senses.

If the odor of the rose wafts over to you as you are walking through the
garden, the verb is i'nxifu, but if you lean over the rose bush and inhale,
the verbal complex is i'nxifu inxipi' (smell transmissively).
