This is a reply to the thread.
Thanks to everybody, especially the one who gave me an URL to visit. Now, I
just need to choose. For the moment, I like "shi, hir(self), hir" very much.
But maybe I will change "shi"?
Definitively not in "one" nor "it" nor "they".
"One" is too... impersonnal.
"It" is too... animal.
"They" is/are too... plural. ;-)
That's a pity nobody like "hes" [his] but I also think that "hes's" is
strange even pronounced [hisiz] which is not very far from [itiz].
But I don't worry much about it; I will find my "ideal" epicene pronoun. ;-)
