Comment: This analect (entered by Nick Evans, and subsequently edited by Owen) just gives the regular and possessive forms. [Other coding decisions left as is] "Pronouns most commonly occur in noun phrases which refer to higher animates." (Loughnane 2009: 94). As there is a distinction in the pronominal forms for third singular male and female, I have not filled in the neuter slot. Because there is no gender distinction for the third dual and plural, I (CvT) have filled in all the slots. "In Oksapmin, the `alone' pronoun is used when you want to refer to the set of referents in question and that set alon, where it was expected that additional participants would have also participated in that same role in the action." (Loughnane 2009: 94). The second form in each box of the paradigms is the `alone' form.
