Yes. The second instruction in its translation is a ordinary load instruction which requires a delay of one instruction before the loaded value can be used.
This is the "no operation" instruction we have been
using all along.
nop # no operation. # do nothing for one machine cycle. # (pseudoinstruction)
mnemonic is used both by
the basic assembler and the extended assembler.
As a pseudoinstruction it can store a register
to memory in one instruction.
sw d,exp # Store register $d into the word at address exp. # exp can be any of several expression types # that evaluate to an address # (pseudoinstruction)
Of course, this is implemented as several basic instructions.
Play Pseudocomputer: translate the
instruction into non-extended instructions:
sw $t0,someWord translated as: lui ,0x1000 sw ,12( )
