      The Nahuatl root "yo:l" appears in two common words. The noun
      form "yo:lli" is the common word for heart. The verb form
      "y:ol(i)" means to live, as in to come to life. But the stem
      "yo:l" appears in many other contexts, including "yo:liztli" You
      might want to take a look at Frances Kartunnen, An Analytical
      Dictionary of Nahuatl to get a feeling for the breadth of the use
      of the stem.
