I like animacy in Cwôła because it allows greater variation in endings and agreement.

M'argive cot sis reus namararns na s'hegaru. Nan n'ont reu ic ai nams n'aridne, lamnes è arcareus.
I like noun classes in Hegaru. Music nouns are in the same class as names of languages and adjectives.

An impoverished translation: 'weak gender' would be clearer, but we don't like that manner of word usage; it's intimate.

No, no; strong genders can be found in Oksirapho and Latin. Each word has a gender, and the líarete (readiness with which an answer can be derived from available evidence) of these genders is not obvious. Lilitika and English genders are more refined, because they are rational.

if it's not obvious, that's an in-character opinion
