Protoform: TOO.4 [CE] Second person singular neutral possessive, your

Description: Second person singular neutral possessive, your
Reconstruction: Reconstructs to CE: Central-Eastern Polynesian

*8 Note. :Wilson 1985 says that the Northern Central Outliers [TAK,OJA,NGR, NKM] also have too "neutral second person singular possessive" but his data suggests that too may be the only form, not a neutralisation of tou/tau. According to (Sps) SIK has too only as (the usual) alternative of tou, but not of tau. (Tpe) provides no data for OJA.
