===Subject and Object Markers===The absolutive markers agree with the subject of a intransitive verb or the direct object of an transitive verb. The 3rd person may be animate or inanimate. The 1st and 2nd person forms differ depending on whether they are followed by an ergative marker.

Where the previous element ends in a consonant, the epenthetic vowel ''ə'' may be inserted, e.g. ''mumubneməd'' "he was saddened", ''
The ergative markers agree with the subject of a transitive verb. Since inanimate nouns cannot be the agent of a verb, by definintion, there are no inanimate ergative markers.
