Dear Vladimir,

Concerning the grammaticalization of cislocative markers (including deictic
adverbs, but not exclusively) to inverse markers, occurring in verb forms
with first or second person object (in particular 2>1, 3>2, 3>1 person
configurations), see for instance:

Jacques, Guillaume and Anton Antonov 2014. Direct/inverse systems. Language
and Linguistics Compass 8/7 (2014): 301–318, 10.1111/lnc3.1207

and the references therein.
