'You' can have fewer, though. Some languages make
no distinction of number at all (e.g., Classical
Chinese), having just "1stP", "2ndP" and "3rdP".
I myself tried playing with a conlang that was loosley based on polynesian
langs and used only words for 1stP, 2ndP, and 3rdP, to establish plural of
these you repeated the pronoun, like noun plurals are sometimes repeated.
In my particular conlang the two repeated pronouns were placed on either
side of the verb. It was just something I played with. (the verb didn't
inflect in this lang which was mostly isolating.)
