 Third person pronouns are extremely difficult to reconstruct: they seem to have
 been demonstratives, though no language agrees on what kind. They probably followed
 a more regular form of the 2nd person declension, as all descendants reflect such
 a paradigm in their own variants of them.

 Word order is normally [Ab{V]ErAc}; negation is performed with a negative particle
 at the beginnings of clauses. Interrogatives are subsitutory and negation doubling
 is obligatory in most cases. All verb phrases are head-final but noun phrases can
 usually be head-initial. Possession is indicated by the dative case on the possessor
 even when it is a pronoun.
 The verb system is fairly complex but not adequately developed and thus often re-
 -analysed in its descendants. Many nouns have irregular paucals and plurals.
