My Non-Gendered Pronoun Proposal


Chinese gets by just fine with no gendered pronouns; why can’t English?

And we can fill some holes in our pronoun system while we’re at it.

I’ve been thinking about this since I posted I am They as You are They and now I think I’ve got a workable solution.

Person Singular Plural not including listener Plural including listener
1st (speaker) I
me
my
mine
we
us
our
ours
we all
us all
our all
ours all
2nd (listener) you
your
yours
you all
your all
yours all
3rd (other) they
them
their
theirs
they all
them all
their all
theirs all

And that’s that.
