14 Dual in independent personal pronouns

Description

This feature asks whether a language has a grammaticalized dual-plural distinction, e.g. Tok Pisin yu 'you (SG)', yupela 'you (PL)', yutupela 'you (DU)'. In some languages, such a special form occurs in all three persons, and in one language, it occurs only in the first person.
