Lexeme data

Language:Gaulish
Meaning:I
Source form:mi ?
Phonological form:
Gloss:I
Notes:Controversial. Either affixed pronoun in the dative (*mī < *moi) or accusative (*mī < *mē). Only in the latter case it would be cognate with the Goidelic and Brittonic pronouns. Alternatively -mi could represent athematic verbal ending -mi. Then, the word 'I' would not be attested in Gaulish.
Cognate codes:D
