Proto-Dravidian had a class of kinship nouns which occurred only in the possessed construction (inalienably possessed); this probably was a syntactic rather than a morphological construction. The personal and reflexive pronouns which occurred as attributes in this construction were only the plural ones; distinction of number in the possessor was not indicated, and could be gathered only from the context. The evidence is drawn from Old Tamil, Kota, Gondi, Kolami, Kuwi, and Kurukh.
