Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses independent personal pronouns, pronominal suffixes on nouns and prepositions, the independent genitive particle, demonstrative pronouns, interrogative pronouns, and reflexive and reciprocal pronouns. The chapter commences with a list of word of pronominal forms. Some of these pronominal forms have undergone historical development, largely by the force of analogy. Then, it presents pronominal suffixes. suffixes that replace the final inflectional vowel of nouns are also illustrated. There are three series of demonstrative pronouns, which can be designated ‘speaker deixis’, ‘far deixis’ and ‘default’. These labels refer to the use of the pronouns to refer to entities in the extra-linguistic situation. All three series of demonstratives can be used independently or attributively in combination with a noun.

Keywords: independent genitive particle; interrogative pronouns; personal pronouns; pronominal suffixes; reciprocal pronouns; reflexive pronouns
