Dotun Roy


In the recent times, it has been proven that advancement is not only in Science and Technology but also in other fields such as humanity, Law, Art and Language Art.  The newly introduced Gender-Neutral Pronoun “Hen” in Swedish Language is indeed a proof that there is an advancement in the language art.

According to Swedish linguist, who sees this introduction as a welcome development in the language art said the word “Hen”a gender-neutral personal pronoun is intended to replace the gender-specific hon(“she”) and han (“he”) to some extent: it can be used when the gender of a person is not known or when it is not desirable to specify them as either a “she” or “he”. Hen could also be used in a third person singular, particularly when the person in question has choose to remain anonymous.
