[snip] 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.
