pronome

Post by calabrone » Thu Jan 06, 2011 8:58 pm

Salve! Mi chiedevo... se non conosco il sesso di una persona quale pronome si usa? Ad esempio: "I drove Andrea home" "Is ___ a woman or a man?"

Thank you :)

In cases like this, we'd probably use a 'neutral' demonstrative pronoun and say 'Is that a man or a woman?' Or we'd use the person's name and say 'Is Andrea a man or a woman?'
