Constructed pronouns
« on: September 10, 2018, 02:02:30 pm »
Just curious; does anyone here use any constructed pronouns, or know anyone who does? I haven't seen anyone on Susan's using them.

My pronouns are Sh'e and H'er.   The placement of the apostrophe is very important.

I am the only one I am aware of that uses these pronouns.

They and them is ok with me as well, as is she and her.

But my preferred is sh'e and h'er.   Because its the only visual you can get that is accurate for who I am.

I made them up.  I assume that makes it constructed.

I prefer Mmes A believe that it has a nice Ze quality to it. It's not constructed though. It is archaic. What can I say I'm an old soul.

Probably because the site doesn't draw many English scholars

I know some people who use e/em/er as their pronouns, a NB couple actually.
Sam?
