Dear Denys,

This is not exactly what you are looking for, but in Stau, the 1sg normally
does not have a distinct ergative form, except in hybrid indirect speech
where we exceptionally find ŋa-w 1sg-erg (see (PDF) Sketch of Stau |
Guillaume Jacques and Lai Yunfan - Academia.edu
<https://www.academia.edu/12321947/Sketch_of_Stau> example 24).
