@MxLexicon: Hi! What do you mean with (i.e. The speaker is from Africa and they will be sharing their sociological research).? --NeoMahler (talk) 09:01, 8 April 2017 (UTC)

@NeoMahler: That was meant to be an example of singular they. --MxLexicon (talk) 03:28, 10 April 2017 (UTC)
@MxLexcion: oh, ok, I get it now. I edited it to see how the sentence would be after replacing the singular they with a neopronoun. --NeoMahler (talk) 09:27, 10 April 2017 (UTC)

@MxLexicon: It seems odd to say that 'Neopronouns are gender-neutral pronouns intended to replace the singular use of "they"' -- this is true for some (see, "thon"), but most modern usage understands that they/them is a grammatically correct gender-neutral pronoun, and some NB people want their own non-binary gender pronouns (like xe/xem). This is not a gender-neutral usage -- it's a non-binary gendered pronouns.
