What's Your Pronoun?: Beyond He and She
by Dennis Baron Author
A fascinating look at the linguistic history of pronouns in English, tracing the rise and fall of the universal "he," taking us on a jaunt through the many nonbinary and gender-neutral pronouns tried over the decades (heesh, wself, and thon to name just a few that never quite caught on), and finally taking a deep dive into the culture, history, and usage of they/them pronouns. Keep this next to Because Internet for an affirming, compelling ride through the ever-evolving history of our language and culture.
