Datapoint Chinese Pidgin English/Alignment of case marking of personal pronouns

Neutral marking is the dominant strategy especially in the Chinese sources, but occasional distinctions are made following nominative-accusative alignment.
Usage varies considerably with both English and Chinese sources. I and my are both used in subject position, while both he and him are used in object position. See Smith (2008) for discussion.
