PPNoSyncCase: The number of casemarked forms of personal pronouns differs from that of nouns, but none are syncretic.
Noun: xɔ̄t ’house’
Pronoun: luw ’he/she/it’
(Onina 2009: 25, 30)
Nouns have three cases in Synja Khanty: the unmarked nominative, the locative, and the lative. Pronouns, however, have four cases: the nominative, the accusative-dative, the locative, and the lative (cf. Honti 1984: 60−65, 70−72, Onina 2009: 23−28, 30). Since personal pronouns have more cases than nouns, the case-marking system of personal pronouns cannot be syncretistic in Synja Khanty.
