Combining gender and classifiers in natural language

In many languages, nouns are systematically categorised into groups. In a gender system, this is based on sex: nouns are treated as either masculine or feminine. Quite a different approach is taken by languages with classifier systems. Here, categorisation is based on fine-grained meaning. Generally, a language will use only one system – either gender or classifiers – but in a few interesting cases both systems are used. How such fundamentally different systems interact within a single language has not yet been seriously considered, but it could potentially uncover a great deal about the interaction of semantics, morphology and cognitive categories.
