I have three such constructions in Rav Zarruvo, depending on the level of speech: the formal ngavol 'ib (lit. "person from"), the conversational 'ib- ("person") as a prefix, or the abbreviation of a person-level pronoun (of which there are six, depending on person) to indicate both that there is a person being discussed and what position in a conversation the person holds ("I am a person from the city" can thus be rendered "nazhyul"). --- Bob's Original Hero Stuff Page!
