System Type: F

Comment: An initial 'i-' may optionally occur attached to the the first and second person A, S, and O forms listed below (Barbour 2012:72). In addition to this, there is an allomorphic distinction between possessive pronouns that occur with initial 't-' and those that do not (the 'bare' forms) (Barbour 2012:136). The bare forms only occur following n-final nouns and and so the t-initial forms are listed below. Finally, the possessive forms listed below are used exclusively with human or sentient possessors (Barbour 2012:135). The two attested systems for the expression of non-human possession are discussed by Barbour (2012:141-6).
