Abstract(s)
After our first study in the field of Indo-European personal pronouns (Dočkalová & Blažek 2010, 2011), where we focused on their paradigmatic levelling, we now consider internal reconstructions of partial microsystems of first and second person pronouns in all individual branches, projecting them back to the late Indo-European protolanguage. The next step was reconstruction of the primary pronominal protosystem, allowing us both to deduce forms of pronouns in historically attested languages and to understand pronominal-verbal congruence, assumed as the axiomatic starting point.
