Re: Gender in Old Klingon?

     I used Klingon as a basis for my original Ricadh plural prefixes, but
that eventually devolved into a classic inclusive/exclusive distinction,
which I don't think qualifies as traditional "gender" in the linguistic
sense of the word.

     However, I _have_ found a few gender-like ideas creeping into the
language -- I've discovered that the Ric'e people have 6 classifications of
words.  Not just nouns, but those classifications creep into every part of
speech.  Just how prevalent those distinctions are, I have yet to discover.
