Subject: Greek reflexivity markers

Hello everyone, I am doing my Master in Linguistics and my thesis is
on reflexivity markers in Ancient and Modern Greek, particularly the
constructs 'eaftos'/'eafto' and the prefix 'afto-'. I am having
trouble locating bibliography on these markers. If someone has any
idea and could help, I would be most grateful. Thank you very much,
please send any message to nandiahatzopuluhotmail.com. I would be
more than willing to post a summary on any comments made and the
bibliography as well.

Thank you,
N. Hatzopulu

I am wondering about the source of these number words. Can they
be from Ossetian or any other Caucasian language?
