This morphologically elaborate system is eventually replaced, however, by one in which there is only a single reflexive pronominal stem (-auto- or its variant euto-).

In On Interpreting Morphological Change, Woodard traces the course of this linguistic development through a period of approxi-mately six cen-turies. An analysis of this pr-cess of morpho-logical replacement reveals that the change is motivated by morphological redundancy and is sensitive to a hierarchy of grammatical relations.
