- Hmm... Rokbeigalmki also uses the vowels _o_ and _i_ to represent masculine and feminine: ro.ijh /ro?iZ/ = sibling o-ro.ijh /?oro?iZ/ = brother i-ro.ijh /?iro?iZ/ = sister also, IZ 'she' and OZ 'he'. The prefix for feminine used to be _a-_ but then i realized that i was just giving in to needless interference from natlangs like Spanish and Hebrew, and i changed it to be more symmetrical and fit the pronoun system better.
