  • 20. During the middle this period these werelost (very careless) except for the sibilantending of the genitive (cognate with the –isof Latin regins in the paradigms above) westill have this, but it is not case makeranymore. It is derivational affix that isadded to noun phrases to producepossessive determiners.
