  • Apr 23 2012: 'SHEH', pronoun - the combination of both 'he' and 'she'

    It would be very useful in the context when we mean both sexes instead of 'he/she' or 's/he'
    It can be also used to denote an undivided being, as a symbol.
    'Sheh's' - a form of possessive case.

    Or 'Hesh' 'Hesh's', I am not a feminist :)
    • Apr 23 2012: great idea. word like this is definitely missing in both languages I speak :D
