Examples of pronouns in use
Some pronouns in English are “she/her/hers,” “they/them/theirs,” “ze/zir/zirs” and “he/him/his.” Some examples follow:
- She likes to read books about queer theory
- Ze is an excellent professor, and I always attend zir academic support hours.
- To celebrate their birthday, they bought themself a new book about inter-sectional feminism.
While some of these may not be familiar to you, they are all linguistically valid. The singular use of “they” was the Linguistic Society of America’s word of the decade in 2020.
