I mean 4th person as beyond the 3rd - um, that's no good. Maybe an example: He drank his coffee. could be He-3sgm drank his-3sgm coffee - he drank his OWN coffee or He-3sgm drank his-4 coffee - he drank his (someone else's) cofee. The second is what I mean by 4th - a second 3rd person, i guess. Aidan
