Comment:
Here im refers to a male entity, however there are no gender distinctions in any pronouns. In the 3rd person, i (NOM) and im (ACC) are the forms used for all natural genders. Note that im is also used as a subject pronoun. This form may be a variant of i. It also may be tentatively analyzed as 3SG.SBJ-PRS.PROG.
