Creation and Usage Notes

In case you're wondering, yes, this is a bit of an irregular evolution. There was a bit of analogical leveling, resulting in all the singular pronouns having low vowels, and all the plural pronouns having high vowels. Earlier on, this would have been kya, later developing into kea, then finally ke.
