For me the problem comes in that I have already processed the 
leftmost qorDu' as third person <i>before</i> I meet the verb and 
prefix, so I have to go back and reprocess. So it doesn't work 
without backtracking.

reghom qorDu' I can do, assuming context that identifies us, and with 
a pause where I expect the speaker to be specified along with his family.
