I have used three new English pronouns for several years and I encourage you to use them.  English has long had a deficiency with singular, non-sexist pronouns.  This should repair it.

 

Use E in place of he/she.

Use shis in place of the possessive, his/her.

Use shim in place of the objective, her/him.

 

These are intuitive in their settings and are economical in text.

 

Yes, these are original with me.
