Dear all,

I am looking for a counterexample/or near-counterexample to the following

- There is no language in which genders/noun classes* are motivated by the
color of the object (i.e. no "white entities" gender etc.)

I am primarily concerned with genders/noun classes in Corbett's sense, i.e.
they have to trigger agreement, but I would be grateful for any related

Best regards,

Ponrawee Prasertsom
