OOPS. This went to Jim personally instead of it going to the list.

I had another look due to your suggestion: I'm so ingrained in the
Masculine-Feminine-Neuter, that I didn't realize that the term could also be
applied to simply animate and inanimate. Though if one simply looks at
gender as classification, I suppose that one could ascribe any sort of
classifications to gender.
As far as the rest of the language goes, verbs are not inflected for person
or number so there would be no effect there. Considering this question, it
came to mind that adjectives will be in agreement with nouns by indicating
this same gender.

It sounds like you have two genders or noun classes
based on animacy. It might be clearer to say that
rather than say that Nauradi has no grammatical
How do the different noun classes interact with
the rest of the language?
