Brblues: Do you have any sketchy idea of pronouns for a western Bokisig language during or after their age of confederation? The pre classical Kojikeng are in the market for a new 1st or 2nd pronoun :p
Sure, the NOM / ACC (they are identical) Early Bokisig forms are:
1SG /mu/ 2SG /dɛx/ 3SG /ki/ [human] - /ʔe/ [non-human]
1PL INC /munɛdɛx/ 1PL EXC /sig/ 2PL /dɛxdɛx/ 3PL /kisig/ [human] 3PL /ʔeʔe/ [non-human]
Stress in the above form is always on the penultimate syllable.
There are also genitive (inalienable plus alienable) and dative forms, but I think those would be less relevant for borrowing?
I am again - or still - procrastinating on the diachronics, as I feel it might be more efficient to enter all the sound changes into PhoMo on Conworkshop.com so that I can hopefully get my entire dictionary sound-changed automatically, but that means I have to rewrite the rules for that. I can still give you my expected results for a somewhat later stage of the language - if it turns out I made a mistake, that can hopefully be justified by being a dialectal variation, or the Kojikeng just misheard [:D]
So that would be Later Bokisig (not sure yet if this will be the classical stage or not), with distinct NOM vs ACC forms:
1SG /mu/ 2SG /dɛx/ 3SG /ki [human]
1PL INC/mu'nɛtx/ 1PL EXC ʃɪg 2PL /dɛjtx/ 3PL ki.ki [human]
1SG /kwu/ 2SG /ʤɛx/ 3SG ki [human]
1PL INC /kwu.'nɛtx/ 1PL EXC /tʃɪg/ 2PL /ʤɛjtx/ 3PL /kiki/ [human]
