question about (Navajo-like) vocab

From:Trebor Jung <treborjung@...>

In Navajo, most nouns are composed of words describing how the noun works or
what it does: so 'lemon' is 'the yellow plant that is being sour'. Could
anybody give me more examples, and an approximate list of the number of
necessary roots, or a list thereof?
