Grammar and Pronouns
We propose to use ta/ta/tade for gender-neutral pronouns. Compare to he/him/his and she/her/hers. These are from the Chinese. Chinese has different words for "he" 他 and "she" 她 and "it" 它, but all are pronounced ta1.
We also occasionally use ren (from Chinese 人 ren2) as a gender-neutral word for person. In phrases such as "The Rise of Man", only a one-syllable word will scan.
While constructions such as chairren, Congressren, and husbandren are possible (much as how “-folk” is used in terms such as ombudsfolk), we do not see a need to use them.
