My apologies, I seem to have missed the link to the grammar description.
It's interesting that you claim word order is essentially free: how would
one distinguish between, say, "dog ate cat" and "cat ate dog"? I wasn't
too clear on that from reading the webpage.

Also, having gendered pronouns is almost a *guarantee* non-European lang
speakers will always get it wrong. I know people who, after *decades* of
living in an English-speaking country, *still* mix up pronouns with the
wrong gender regularly. You might want to consider dropping this
altogether.
