Different forms, previously current, for the personal pronouns are  
now preserved only in
attachment, as the -UN for HEM הם in ISAUNKA ישאונך HI-SA-UN- 
AKAH, 'they (shall) bear thee',
of Ps. 91:12.

Another example is TA$LIKUN = TA-$L-I-K-UN תשליכון 'ye (shall)  
cast it' of Ex. 22:30.

And "why not -W?". Now it is, indeed, shortened to a mere U.
