#1002 PPC *r-mi(y)-n PERSON / MAN

Reconstructed mesoroots below:

The *‑n suffix (a morpheme signifying collectivity, according to Benedict, STC n. 428, pp. 157-8) is attested in Written Burmese and Chinese.

This morpheme frequently occurs as first element in compounds signifying body part terms (e.g., in Mzieme, Zeme, Magar).

It also occurs as final element in names of Tibeto-Burman ethnic groups (e.g., Prinmi, Thangmi, Khumi, Xumi), and as first element in such names as well (e.g., Mizo, Mikir, Mishing, Miji). In this respect, it is similar to #5632 PTB *su*s‑lu WHO / INDEF PRONOUN / REMOTE 3RD PERS..
