I have tried everything I can think of to get Null Morphemes to work, and I
think we've probably found something Shoebox doesn't handle gracefully.  I
know that I would have no interest in adding very many alternate forms  per
noun and pronoun into a lexicon.  :)  Variables don't seem to be interpreted
unless reduplication is used, so I think that is out.  The only alternative I
can see to the inelegant solution of multiple alternate forms would be to
leave it out and assume that it is there... or add -0 like David has been
doing.  I have emailed SIL about it to see if they have a better solution.

"On two occasions I have been asked by members of Parliament, `Pray, Mr.
Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers
come out?'  I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas
that could provoke such a question." -- Charles Babbage
