'One' seems a bit unexpected, I guess the counting includes it being used as an adjective

One would be mistaken to think that "one" can only be used as an adjective, wouldn't one? ;-D

Well done sir! I don't know how many Latinos there are in Korea, but, but that's neither here nor there.

I don't know about others, but I was thinking pronouns on my own language and translated them. There is many pronouns in Finnish language but one is not one of them.

That is bat****crazy, and rapidly spiraling out of control. I should not be required to learn who wants to be zhee, zim or zher. One neutral pronoun is fine, or wanting to be "the other" is fine, but making up ten or twenty new words and requiring others to learn them is just ridiculous.

1) Strawman 2) Learning new words?! What fresh hell! How DARE people expect us to learn words for them! Next you'll say everyone I meet has an individual name which they will have the audacity to make me learn! Perish the thought

3) Again, strawman. Has anyone really ever asked you to call them by zhe etc.? Or is that just something you read once? Maybe 'they' (which is, actually, already a word), but come on, your transphobia is showing

'Her' as the objective form of 'she,' not the possessive.

He gave it to her - her functions as an object. By contrast: He gave it to his - doesn't work. Her is not exclusively possessive, whereas his is.

His can be a pronoun - like mine, yours, hers, ours, theirs etc. But this use is less common than 'her'.

Seriously, Tinkle? You had to squeeze in *two* snarky and offensive comments on the exact same unrelated topic on ONE quiz? Now that you've gotten the attention you were seeking, can you stop?

'Who' can be a pronoun, which is included; so (in exactly the same way) can 'what', which is excluded. Why?
