Datapoint Fa d’Ambô/Alignment of case marking of personal pronouns

The subject and object pronouns are the same. Most of the time the last sound drops in initial position; at the end of the utterance the first sound of the pronoun drops. But this has nothing to do with case marking. It depends on the position in the sentence and the sounds surrounding it.
