Somewhere I have the rest of this conlang's possessive/formality system (I only wrote it last week! Where is it?). There are four levels of formality. The presentation goes from most formal to most familiar.

The highest level uses infixes, with suffixes to disambiguate first and second plural

simitamang
si.'mi.ta.mang
si<mi>ta-ma-ng
lord<1PL>-1PL-MSG

simitating
si.'mi.ta.ting
si<mi>ta-ti-ng
lord<2PL>-2PL-MSG

The high-mid level uses suffixes.

sitamang
'si.ta.mang
sita-ma-ng
lord-1PL-MSG

sitating
'si.ta.ting
lord-2PL-MSG

The low-mid level uses the possessive /mung/ with personal infixes.

sita mimung
'si.ta mi.'mung
sita m<im>ung
lord POSS<1PL>

sita mitung
'si.ta mi.'tung
sita m<it>ung
lord POSS<2PL>

The low level uses a prepositional phrase.

sita mung mima
'si.ta mung 'mi.ma
lord POSS 1PL

sita mung mitin
'si.ta mung 'mi.tin
lord POSS 2PL
