Semantic couplets in the Nahuatl language can function as discourse markers that
have the pragmatic function of building identities among speech communities. The subsistence
of these linguistic structures in present day institutional discourses points to
similarities, not only in social, religious but also in linguistic practices of speech communities
that are distant in time. Semantic couplets are presented as evidence that
links modern speech events with those from pre-Hispanic times.
