I think that I'll stick to simple things like Praxian, where the meaning
of a word can depend upon its gender.
/gjum@n&nTi/ "the slave" (of unknown gender, therefore neuter is used)
/gjum@n&ntr/ "the foreigner" (of foreign gender--"tr" is not a typo)
/gjum@n&nTor/ "the Devil worshipper" or "The Red Priest" (of wrong gender)
To indicate apparent sexual gender of a foreigner, the adjectives /wa?en/
(bullish/male) or /?aIren/ (cow-like/female) are used (both with the -en
"foreign" gender singular ending, in this case).
