Re: They

Anyone else think "They" isnt really cutting it as a pronoun to indicate a single person ?

Its supposed to be used for groups of people surely?

Its like there's a word missing and "they" seems to have been lumbered with its responsibilities.

Funny, we were just having the same discussion of the fanfiction.net writers forum.
