comment Did case systems dissappear to make embedding easier?
@RonMaimon: Reading that passage of John aloud, I cannot help but using different intonations, in particular the bracketed part about the servants with a different voice. Maybe some sort of concurrency rather than recursion serves to memorize such hypotactical constructions.

comment What is the origin of non-natural grammatical genders in Indo-European languages?
In many cases the grammatical gender can be derived from grammatical categories. For example, various types of gerunds can have a fixed gender in a language, or different word endings trigger a certain gender. So there is less to memorize. Furthermore, the genders might have corresponded to the cultural perception of things among speakers of those languages. So there is less to memorize.
