Here is all the Nahuatl that I can remember:  Pronounce everything like you would say it in Spanish except for when you see an "h" (then you should pronounce it like you say it in English) and you should do it about right. The nahuatl is presented as how I learned it in the Sierra de Zongolica mountain range in Mexico close to Orizaba, Veracruz.

Hello  = Pahnolti
A greeting in the town of Atlahuilco = Chika-wah-tika
Thank you = Tlasokamati or Klasokamati
You're Welcome = Amitla (this is the word for "nothing" and means, "it was nothing")
Where = Kani
Here = Nika or Nikan
Good = Cuali
Very = Miak
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 = se ome eyi nawi makwile chi-kwasi chi-kweyi chic-nawi matlatle
Neh = I, Me, Myself
Teh = You, Your, Yourself
Where one lives = Nocha (e.g. I am from Atlanta. or I live in Atlanta. = Neh nocha Atlanta)
Get out of here! = Shio de nika! (means, "Away from here!")
You are a witch/sorcerer = Teh tlachiwis
How much? = Ketch
