Dear Colleagues,

I am writing an article on possible historical links between personal
pronouns of the languages Asia and the Pacific, and gathering data on the
reconstructed proto-language personal pronoun forms.

I would appreciate to have an advice on where I can find information on the
two points:

1. Is there any clue on the reconstruction of the Common Proto-Australian
personal pronouns? I found some Pama-Nyungan reconstructions, but not

2. The same for Austronesian: though some scholars give Proto-Mon-Khmer
pronouns, but have the Proto-Austroasiatic personal pronouns been

I will be obliged for any advice on the topic.
