Unlike full NPs, pronouns reveal no animate/inanimate distinction when it comes to case-marking. Clauses containing pronominal arguments are therefore the clearest instances of the nominative-accusative alignment governing case-marking in Diu Indo-Portuguese: pronominal P arguments are case-marked, whereas both S and A arguments are not.
However, case assignment remains highly dependent on semantic considerations. As in the case of full NPs, pronominal A arguments can also be case-marked if they are taken to be experiencers of an event beyond their control.
