Gender neutral pronoun ‘they’ named word of the decade
 


Neutral pronoun 'they' has been voted word of the decade by US language experts, beating out other contenders.

"They" is used in English by a growing number of non-binary individuals, people who do not identify as either male or female. They prefer the plural neutral pronoun to bypass using the pronouns "he" or "she".

The American Dialect Society had previously named “they” word of the year in 2015.
