Gender classes, which to use?
|Date:||Wednesday, November 25, 1998, 7:13|
I am thinking of making a simple gender-class system
somewhat like Bantu languages. The idea might be to
use the initial consonant to indicate class, e.g.
B... = animal F... = tool J... = groups
C... = plant G... = artifact K... = substances
D... = human H... = other object L... = foods
So if I had 20 or so categories what might they be,
how best to categorize all of creation?
This might work nicely as a sort of hash table,
but then it might be very tempting to use the
initial vowel as well ...
