Proto-Japanese: *a-
Altaic etymology: Altaic etymology
Meaning: 1st p. pron.
Russian meaning: местоим. 1 лица
Old Japanese: a-
Comments: This pronoun (as shown, e.g. in Itabashi 1998) could have been used parallelly with wa-, but differed in that it could participate in compounds (like a-se 'my spouse', a-duma 'my wife' etc.), which was impossible for wa. This may indicate that the original function of *a was 'oblique stem of the 1st p. pr.'.
