The Chinese use "wo" for the first
person singular, this would caution
me from choosing it for an IAL, I'd
suggest you consider the similiarity
of some words that they may not
form false cognates where possible.
One situation that is similar to this
is Esperanto's "ni" which sounds like
Chinese "ni" for second person singular
and Hebrew's " a'ni " which is a first
person singular, how international is
that ??? :-)))

Since,
