One opened the August 1978 issue of the American Psychologist with one's customary eagerness, and on reading “Can ‘She’ and ‘He’ Coexist?” (see record 1990-58427-001) exclaimed to oneself, “Now, there's a thoughtful solution to a bothersome problem of language!” One's admiration for the beautiful simplicity of the solution does not keep one from wondering about its feasibility, however. The introduction of a new meaning and new grammatical forms to a familiar-seeming prefix may be confusing. Might it not be even simpler and more practical to urge the expanded usage of existing familiar words whose use would not require any such changes of meaning or interpretation? One would hope so, and this one thinks so. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
