[comments] Cazenian nouns (and pronouns) are classified into two super-classes - the "rational", and the "non-rational" - which include a total of six classes. Humans and deities are classified as "rational", and all other nouns (animals, objects, abstract nouns) are classified as non-rational. The "rational" nouns and pronouns belong to one of three classes - masculine, feminine, and collective. The collective form for rational nouns may be used as an honorific, gender-neutral, singular form. The "non-rational" nouns and pronouns belong to one of three classes - natural, artificial and collective. Classes are often indicated through definite articles.
