Latin doesn't have any third-person pronouns at all, except the reflexive "se", which of course needs no nominative case, since the whole point of a reflexive is "same as the subject". Just like "ego" needs no vocative case. :-) Otherwise, demonstratives serve the purpose. -- One Word to write them all, John Cowan <jcowan@...> One Access to find them, One Excel to count them all, And thus to Windows bind them. --Mike Champion
