Comment: The possessive forms listed below are formed by the attachment of a personal suffix to the stem 'maːl-/maːlat-'. The set of personal suffixes is identical to the set of suffixed object forms listed below except that the 1sg form is '-i' as opposed to '-ni' (Holes 1990:170-1). The form 'maːl-' appears when the possessum is masculine while 'maːlat-' is used with a feminine possessum (Holes 1990:170-1). The forms incorporating 'maːl-' are listed below. In addition to this, an alternative independent possessive form may be constructed by suffixing the above mentioned personal suffixes to the stem 'ħagː-' which does not inflect for the gender of the possessum. Pronominal possession may also be expressed by direct suffixation of the personal suffixes to the possessed noun (Holes 1990:171).
