I am thinking of using complete reduplication of the appropriate personal
pronoun to indicate 3rd person reflexive:
example in Standard:
He talked to him about hishis grades.
(in this example, _hishis_ refers to the 2nd male person in the sentence)
makee pidjin/Neu Spelin Inglis esampul:
Hi bin talk hi in rigard hihi plenti graed.
(in this example, _hihi_ refers to the 2nd male person in the sentence)
