[top]Pronouns

Pronouns in  Vakajao are separated by three forms. The Neutral, Feminine, and Masculine. They are indicated by the presence of a suffix or not. The default is no suffix neutral gender. The suffix -u indicates feminine gender. Where as the suffix -a indicates masculine gender. In formal writings and speech the neutral form is the default form.
When referring to someone else the default is to refer to them in a neutral pronoun, unless you specifically know their gender, then it is okay to refer to them with the appropriate pronoun.

[top]Cases

Case is applied as a suffix. When encountering another suffix such as plurals, case takes precedence.

[top]Tense
