Historical notes

Goddard's analysis: pre-PEA *-a:n, regular reflex of PA *-a:ni, was reshaped to *-a by analogy with the independent, where inherited pre-PEA *-əna:n 1p became *-əna due to the general replacement of word-final pluralizers with the m-suffix variant. The same shortening from *-a:n to *-a was then applied analogically to conjunct *-a:n.


This is the word-final allomorph of the 1s conjunct suffix.
