    [NOTE: only say-phrases can distinguish between capitalised and uncapitalised letters. Decide-phrases cannot.]
    [Also, only the first word in the say-phrase distinguishes, so We/He/She/I will only distinguish capitalisation for we, not he/she/I.]

    To say we: say the possibly capitalised pronoun corresponding to the story viewpoint in subjective case.
    To say us: say the possibly capitalised pronoun corresponding to the story viewpoint in objective case.
    To say ours: say the possibly capitalised pronoun corresponding to the story viewpoint in possessive pronoun case.
    To say ourselves: say the possibly capitalised pronoun corresponding to the story viewpoint in reflexive case.
    [these are determiners (like an adjective)]
    To say our: say the possibly capitalised [possessive] pronoun [adjective] corresponding to the story viewpoint in possessive case.

    To decide which text is the pronoun corresponding to (decl - a declension) in (gcase - a number):
        now the prior named noun is nothing;
        choose row ((decl as a number) multiplied by the number of grammatical cases) plus the gcase from the table of pronoun declensions;
        decide on the pronoun-declension-column entry.
