Hi This may seem a strange way of approaching a new thread on this subject, but what the heck! Gender Neutral As versatile as English appears to be, There is a gaping hole obvious to me, We are missing a word that fits so far, He or she in the third person singular, A word gender neutral is what we need, And on that subject I am here to plead, Third person plural They has had to do, Yet not really enough for me and you, Then confusing as it is in this modern age, How to judge a sex without causing rage, So what new word can we perhaps create, To reflect a gender in all its various state, Some US academics have made the claim, The use of Yo. Now that would be a shame, For when one is calling out to either sex, I find HOY! You, is what most of us expects. For referring to ’that person’ without sex, As the ‘third person singular’ in context, I have given this task my deepest thought, This is my short list, upon which to report, There is, ar, es, em, herm, han, even thon, Investigations of which I can say more on, But a word not to offend and put to the test, Ere, pronounced ‘air’, is probably my best. Someone has left ere hat. Ere who laughs last laughs longest. Any thoughts!
