Interesting Pronouns.

Ello y'all

One of the things I generally find, well, dull in my conlangs are the
pronouns. They're usually all three persons, singular and plural, possibly
with added 'dual' pronouns[1], and possibly even 2 or more genders for each,
just to try and make things interesting.

In short, they won't. The result is usually a fairly cluttered table of
pronouns that don't make too much sense.

So, what I was wondering is if you, my fellow conlangers, have any
interesting/alternative ways of making pronouns (or perhaps not using
pronouns at all) that you'd care to share?


[1] not sure about what term is used for those, what I mean is that the
'dual' pronoun is used when two people/objects are the subjects of the
pronoun, the plural being for three or more people/objects. Just to avoid
any misunderstanding :)
