Ayeri's complete pronoun system must be a case of rather chaotic
contraction then... See
<http://benung.nfshost.com/?go=grammar&action=grammar#pronanaph>.
Originally it was intended 'unmarked' + regular case ending (see
discussion of cases under § 6.4 ff.). This seemed too lengthy and
repetitive to me at some point though, so I made all those
contractions.
