Thanks And for bringing this back on topic :-)

In KlaXa, all nouns and pronouns are gender-neutral by default.
You can add the suffix -wen for female or -tan for male to any word
where it would make sense.
e.g. Xeŋāt = parent (from Xeŋaŋ - to beget) therefore Xeŋātwen =
mother and Xeŋāttan = father.
and
e.g. dhuk = she or he; dhukwen = she; dhuktan = he.

The suffixes I chose for gender distinction were arbitrarily stolen
from Māori (Wahine and Tane).
