Comment: The forms entered here are treated as a verbal inflectional category in the grammar. There are no forms for 3rd person. The following is the justification provided for why they were chosen over the independent pronouns to be presented in the database Emphatic/contrastive pronoun stems exist in the language which function as A, S, and O forms and may occur as independent words in certain contexts (Graczyk 2007:60). However, these elements are frequently bound to some other element, always co-occur with bound pronominals, and have a highly specific emphatic function (Graczyk 2007:60). Thus, the non-emphatic bound pronominals that appear attached to the verb and typically serve to index pronominal features are given below as A, S, and O forms. In addition to this, the A and S forms listed only function as such with active verbs (Graczyk 2007:60). The subject of a stative verb is always represented by the appropriate O form listed below (Graczyk 2007:60). Also note, the Poss. forms listed index alienable possession only (Graczyk 2007:53). A set of distinct paradigms giving the forms for inalienable possession are discussed by Graczyk (2007:53 ff).
