Wiktionary英語版での「they」の意味

they

語源

From Middle English thei, borrowed in the 1200s from Old Norse þeir,[1] nominative plural masculine of the demonstrative , which acted as a plural pronoun. It displaced native 古期英語 , hīe (they) — which vowel changes had left indistinct from he (he)by the 1400s,[1][2][3] being readily incorporated alongside similar native words beginning with the same sound (the, that, this).

The Norse term (whence also Icelandic þeir (they), Faroese teir (they), Swedish de (they), Norwegian Nynorsk dei (they)) derives from Proto-Germanic ai (those) (from Proto-Indo-European *to- (that)), whence also 古期英語 þā (“those”; whence obsolete English tho), Scots thae, thai, thay (they; those).

Senses of they = "their", "there" may represent variants of their, there.

Used as a singular pronoun since 1300,[1] for example in the 1325 Cursor Mundi (which uses þer).

  6. ^ Michael Reed, Tech Book 1 (ISBN 0956081312), Note abut pronoun usage, page 9: "Singular they can introduce some ambiguity because the antecedent of the pronoun “they” could theoretically be a male or female [... but] English has survived the loss of pronouns such as thou (単数形 you) despite the consequent potential for ambiguity."
