IDRO Friday Seminar

Gender-Inclusive Language in Languages with Grammatical Gender: Problems and Prospects

Lindsay Preseau

While gender marking on English pronouns (he/she/they) poses both problems and prospects for gender-inclusive and -affirming language use, languages such as German, French and Hebrew, which mark gender not just on pronouns, but on all nouns, face much more complex predicaments and possibilities.

In this presentation, Lindsay Preseau, assistant professor of German in the Department of World Languages and Cultures, gives an overview of the current state of research in this area in Indo-European and Afro-Asiatic languages with grammatical gender and presents a case study of a project aiming to document and teach gender-inclusive forms in German.
