FC #1 – Gender
"FC" means "founding concept".
Linal is a language that does not emphasize on one gender or the other. The neutral gender exists.
Any noun referring to a living being is subject to being neutral, feminine or masculine. Words like "table" or "house" need no suffix to tell they are neutral.
If the radical "nem-" refers to a human being:
- neme = person
- nemwe = man
- nemje = woman
- nemite = child
- nemitwe = child boy
- nemitje = child girl
Same with a dog (doge/dogwe/dogje), a parent/father/mother (parente/parentwe/parentje) or an alien.
Likewise, 3rd person personal pronouns include a neutral pronoun: le, lwe, lje.
