Subject:  Question - personal pronouns which change with temporal  reference

Dear Linguists,

I recently read an article about self and personhood in various
cultures, which states that "there are languages, such as Iaca (New
Caledonia), which have sets of [personal] pronouns marked for
different tenses, contradicting Western notions of physical continuity
[of the self]".

I can't find any mention on the web of a language called Iaca;
however, his point may well still be true.  Can anyone tell me an
example of a language which shows the grammatical characteristic which
he describes?

Thanks for any leads,
David Palfreyman
Zayed University, Dubai.

:-D

Does anyone know of any work on so-called ''phoneme awareness''
in (L1) learners who are learning to read any language/writing
system of the Indian subcontinent?
