A lot of people seem to prefer/enjoy using English, which makes sense since it’s a lot less gendered than some other languages!

I’ve been wondering, though, has anyone made any attempt to modify their own languages in some way to make them fit better? I personally am really interested in this because I’ve been living in English-speaking countries for half my life so I have a lot of issues with not speaking my first language as well as I like and wanting to use it more.

So I’ve been thinking of what I could do; make up a new pronoun and endings to go with it? Mash the existing German ones together somehow? Maybe I could somehow borrow and adapt the English ‘they’ or the gender-neutral Swedish pronoun.

Has anyone ever tried anything like this? How did it go?
