In Northern Mansi, the appearance of a pronominal possessor depends on the informational structure, i.e. it is optional (Riese 2001: 64). In contrast, the personal suffix is compulsory next to a pronominal possessor (Riese 2001: 28). Rombandeeva considers this construction emphasized and focused due to the obligatory affixation (Rombandeeva 1973:64).
