In a series of papers I have explored the development of the personal pronoun system in different periods of Tibetan linguistics history (Hill 2007, 2010, 2013, 2015). In this paper, I focus on first person singular pronouns, surveying my own previous findings and filling in the picture with further gleanings from version A and (where the passage in question is missing in A) version E of the Old Tibetan Rāmāyaṇa (de Jong 1989). When the evidence of the Rāmāyaṇa is insufficient, I further consult other Dunhuang texts, the Mdzaṅs-blun, and the Vinayakṣudrakavastu (Ḥdul ba phran tshegs kyi gźi, D.6). Apart from a few Dunhuang texts, these sources are all translations or adaptations of foreign literature into Tibetan.
