Comment: All forms listed below are given in the transcription adopted by Grorelova (2002). Please note also, it is not always the case that a pronoun or noun functioning as the direct object of a verb appears inflected for the accusative case (Gorelova 2002:172). The primary function of the accusative case is to mark the direct object, however, and as no clear explanation of the conditioning factors determining whether a direct object appears in the accusative or not is given by Gorelova (1999), the accusative forms are listed below as the object pronouns.
