She. Imagine a small big mother clucker/hen that breathes fear into mortal men.
It is an accident in the terms that it is a dialect made up out of English, German and Dutch, bastardizing words, simplifying writing to child-like and ignoring "stuff" that makes the language predictable (grammar?) English (and Dutch) is ironically built on exceptions to the rule and hard to learn to do right. Easy to learn the basics, harder to learn if you grew up without. Most that had access to Hollywood movies learned easily.
At the time, I felt English was the most accessible language, with almost every manual containing an English version. English united developers, like the Academics hoped Esperanto would unite Europe. German is unhelpfull, as it contains lots of non-ASCII characters.

In Spanish, the word for left-handed and the word for deaf are very similar. I used to purposely misuse them and say things like, "Sorry, I can't hear you, I'm left-handed." I think I was the only one who found it humorous.
Everyone is born right handed. Only the strongest overcome it.
I did one to someone (I'll keep the language anonymous).
He (a Canadian) wanted to know how to say 'cucumber' so he could ask for it in the dining room. As it turns out, the word for cucumber is rather odd and cumbersome.
Since he did know the colors in that language, I gave him and expression that sounded more reasonable aNd correct, which translated to "Green Penis". With a big smile on his face, he blurted out his request.
