Senjecas hass the rather ubiquitous practive of using the demonstrative adjective for the 3rd person pronouns.  Nis = that; nus = he, she; nos/nas = it.

If a distinction is necessary sex prefixes are added, as is done for epicene nouns.

ekwes = horse; norekwes = stallion; iiekwes = mare.

nornus = he; iinus = she.
