If there a Leipzig standard to gloss a suffix like

“1st person subject, second person object, past tense”

My best guess is


And then what if it’s first person exclusive


This looks really clunky, but maybe it’s proper.

I didn’t see anything in the Leipzig standards on this issue.

    Those glosses are what I'd expect to see glossed, though that's a lot of grammatical content for one morpheme! – curiousdannii Jan 9 '19 at 22:10
  • Wouldn't it usually be 1S.2O.Past and 1exclS.2O.Past? – Gaston Ümlaut Jan 9 '19 at 23:57
  • @GastonÜmlaut I guess you’d want a period between excl and S, no? After all, S and excl will be listed separately on the list of glosses at the end – Teusz Jan 11 '19 at 12:56
