>Miguel:Unlikely, given that we have:
>>>What I had in mind was the PIE verbal system, where we find *m ~ *w
>>> >>alternations in the 1st person,
>Ah, I almost forgot. More stuff to ponder on, Miguel. As for the *m/*w
>alternation, this is seen also in Uralic's subjective/objective verb system:
>Nenets xadad?m versus xadav.
>In fact, we also see IE *wei-, don't we.We do!
>The Nostrative ergative 1ps was *nu/*mu while the absolutive was *?u. BeforeI assume that by *?ana- you mean the first part of *?an-a(ku) "I".
>saying that this is poppycock, check out AA's prefixal stative conjugation
>in *?a- (Nostratic *?u) versus *?ana- (*nu/*mu)
>and Kartvelian *c^-we-n- "our" (Nostratic *?u)The plural morpheme *-wen that it shares with *tkwen "you (pl.)"?
