Person

Person is typically a feature of personal and possessive pronouns, and of verbs. On verbs it is in fact an agreement feature that marks the person of the verb’s subject. Person marked on verbs makes it unnecessary to always add a personal pronoun as subject and thus subjects are sometimes dropped (in pro-drop languages). Like other Slavic languages, Pomak is a pro-drop language.
