COMMUNITY - FORUMS - REPORT A BUG
Prelyria
+1

Not sure if we're supposed to report Prelyria bugs but in the shiny about the information system the grammar in the dialogue when asking about someone is weird: when you ask about a single person (in this case Acalawa Travatsi) the answer always adresses "them" (plural). "I know them, they're a female". Wouldn't it be "I know her, she is a female"?

Actually both forms are proper. In English, Them/They/Their are both plural signifiers and gender neutral singular signifiers. For example, if you don't know someone's gender or if you are deliberately staying gender-neutral, you might say something like, "I met Pat today; they were very polite."

Hope that helps! :)

Thank you, Snipehunter. :)

I'll be locking this thread now as it has been addressed above.
