Construct case and genitive pronouns

Looking at the current state of my Tarsyanian grammar, I
wondered if it would be necessary to have possessive
pronouns in the construct state. I can't imagine a sentence
where the possessive pronoun is the non-head (How do you
call this, BTW? Foot?) of the NP. I think if I strictly
applied the construct state, the possessive pronouns would
be of no use except in answers like "Mine". On the other
hand, why can't I have construct case with nouns but
genitive case with pronouns? Is that an anadewism, by any
