exactly #1 u know call home or the last # they called... I'm just sayin.
I'm french so maybe I'm wrong but I think it was used properly as we don't know if the phone's proprietor is male or female (maybe the photo was sent to their phone and not taken by it), we can't use his or her. Just as you can use they for one person when you don't know if "they" are a male or a female.
Neither Wikipedia nor Wikitionary is a reliable source. @63 You really need to go back to grammar school and learn proper English. "Their" is the possessive case of the word "they". "They" is the plural pronoun for "he", "she", and "it". "Their" is always plural, and you are, apparently, always ignorant and stupid.
Okay, I'll acknowledge that wikipedia isn't the best source, but how about the dictionary? Definition number 2: "used after an indefinite singular antecedent in place of the definite masculine form his or the definite feminine form her." In other words, it is, in fact, correct to use "their" as a singular when referring to a person of unknown or unspecified gender.
I'm guessing you meant #64, as opposed to 63? If such is the case, I am only enjoying this more. How someone could think so strongly that something is right when it isn't just baffles me. Perhaps YOU should go back to school. Or are you still in high school? Are you like 12 or something?
to #64 / #118... you really should pick up a book or dictionary or repead gradeschool before you go telling others that they are wrong. their and any other form of they is ALWAYS and ONLY plural. his, hers, one's, its are the singular words. again, you couldn't be more wrong with your reasoning or accusations.
Read a book. There are plenty of unreliable sources on the internet. You can find hundreds agreeing with your usage and millions agreeing with ours. Take a middle school, high school, or college grammar course and you might be able to better understand how the English language works.
You are a dumbass. Comment #112 specifically stated that they were quoting the definition from a dictionary. A dictionary, surprisingly, happens to be a book. I'd suggest taking a middle school or high school reading class to help your reading disability. I'll humor you and take the exact definition from my Oxford American College Dictionary. "2 [singular] used to refer to a person of unspecified sex: ask a friend if they could help." Here's a segment from the usage paragraph located below. "... in view of the growing acceptance of they and its obvious practical advantages, they is used in this dictionary in many cases where he would have been used formerly." Which means the Oxford American College Dictionary considers it as an accepted definition and also uses it in "many cases" throughout the book. I'm going to believe a 1600+ paged college dictionary knows more about the English language than you do. Nice try, pal.
well the only alternative is to have sex with all your co-workkers in order to identify him, that is the Christian way :)
