Dear Peter,

Jeff Heath's work may be helpful:

Subject: [Lingtyp] origins of portmanteaux bound person forms

Dear typologists,

in quite a few languages certain combinations of A and P person values are expressed by portmanteau affixes, e.g. the Hungarian -lak/lek 1sg>2sg/pl. I am wondering if for any of such markers in any language their historical origins are known or can be determined with sufficient reliability? I would be grateful for any hints, especially supported by bibliographic references.

Many thanks in advance!
