Personal Pronoun Origins
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am gathering data on the diachronic origins of personal pronouns in
various world languages. There are numerous cases where they are directly
derived from nouns (Indones. saya < sahaya 'servant' etc.) or compositions
(Japan. anata 'that side' > 'you').
I am looking for any other interesting cases like these. If you have
something in mind, I will greatly appreciate your feedback to
email@example.com. Will definitely refer to you when getting anything
published, and will put the summary of this discussion here.
Thank you all,
