This whole discussion has me in a humourous mode. I think it is possible
to someday have a language or two with "gender systems" based on organic
lifeforms & non-organic intelligences (i.e. AI [Artificial Intelligence] &
For instance, the organic/sentient intelligences might be divided into:
1) _human/primate_ and then _other animal intelligences_ (cetean,
feline, canine, etc.) &
2) the machine intelligences all lumped into one category.
Sounds like a Herman Miller project to me...
