so you mean a lang where even a pronoun isn't used for the 1st person ? i think of khmer. you usually drop 1st person "khnyom" and rarely omit 2nd and 3rd. but there is always the possibility to use "khnyom" so i guess it's a wrong answer. i just wanted to say i finally understood the thread - somewhat. mathias
