“we”, 1st person dual exclusive pronominal ending: *“I and one other” compare the inclusive dual form -ngwë or -nquë. First written -immë in one source VT49:57. Carimmë, *“the two of us do” VT49:16, cf. VT43:6. At an earlier conceptual stage, the ending was already exclusive, but plural rather than dual: vammë "we won't" WJ:371, firuvammë "we will die" VT43:34, etemmë ?"out of us" VT43:36; see also VT49:48, 49, 55. Also compare the corresponding emphatic pronoun emmë q.v.. The ending -lmë replaced -mmë in its former plural exclusive sense. In some early material, -mmë was apparently used as an ending for plural inclusive “we” VT49:55.
