In their search for an English gender-neutral word to signify the third person singular, advocates and writers have offered solutions, from “e” to “ze.” London Review of Books blog editor and LRB Conversations podcast host Thomas Jones picks up on the debate with Oxford’s Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory Amia Srinivasan. They explore what gender pronouns mean in other languages, how English speakers can use them more sensitively in their speech, and how language reflects a society’s gender and power dynamics.
