Rethinking the gender evidence/gender merge and the subgenders, I will try
phisical evidence: you have seen, touch, percive with your senses the act
deduced evidence: you have seen, touch, percive, listen to effects of the
act and can recreate de fact.
refered evidence: you have been told of the act itself.
concrete things: things you can see, listen, percive with your senses.
mental things: things you can deduce based on your knoledge or perceptions
but are no phisical (abstract things)
speech things: things involving language, very suitable for us conlangers.
This level of evidence and gender are compulsory: al nouns have to mark this
distinction as well as any acompaning modifiers.
Subevidence & subgenders
- ? / person and any speech capable creature/organization
- ? / animated or live things
- ? / inanimated things
- deduced by own thoughts / ideas
- deduced after phisical evidence / perception
- remembering / knowledge
- ? / action
- trusted source / speech creations (languages, works, etc.)
- transcription of given source / gramatical terms
- gossip / ?
Those subevideces/subgenders are not compulsory. If agreement is needed
words must agree in first level gender and must not disagree in second level
If deduced/mental is given by ending in -o, ideas would end in -ido (this
way ending in -o).
