Dear Marie-Luise,

In Gyalrong languages, inalienably possessed nouns have almost  the same
set possessive prefixes as alienably possessed ones, but present a certain
number of morphological differences, see Zhang (2020, p.27++, Le rgyalrong
situ de Brag-bar et sa contribution à la typologie de l'expression des
relations spatiales : L'orientation et le mouvement associé - TEL - Thèses
en ligne (archives-ouvertes.fr)
<https://tel.archives-ouvertes.fr/tel-03176380>) on Situ and Jacques (2021:
114++ A grammar of Japhug | Language Science Press (langsci-press.org)
<https://langsci-press.org/catalog/book/295>) on Japhug.
