Language evolves to meet new needs and has done so for a very long time. The use of they/them in new contexts is part of that history. It is important that language be responsive and make sense. In this book, the author provides a good explanation for the current addition of they/them as a singular pronoun that is responsive to our current time.
The author provides history and engages in dialogue with the reader, all the while helping readers to embrace adding to their vocabularies. This book is recommended for those who want to educate themselves and others in their lives. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
