    The listing of Acehnese as “Zero in all 3rd person forms” is inexplicable. Durie 1985:117 is listed as the source, but there it is indicated that the third person is ji=, di=, i=. My experience with the language agrees with Durie’s — those are the possible forms, and there is NO possibility for zero 3rd that is different from zero 1st/2nd. (leaving aside dialects in which the prefix is optional, independently of person)
