Proto-Tallic had several roots for the 1st person singular. The commonest was √i. √ez was used in formal situations or when dissociated from the narrative and was more noun-like, whereas √na was used in the reverse case, where personal involvement was emphasized. Talmit, with its development towards a state/event distinction, has only kept éze < √ez, properly meaning something like ’my state’ which could also take tense.
In Kymna, i- < √i and e- < √ez fell together, while the root √na was used for the affected forms except for the nominative singular.
