Welcome to the Pronoun Wiki!

The Pronoun Wiki is a community site that documents a variety of personal pronoun sets. This site is a place to read and learn about different pronoun sets, and a place to allow others to try out and find the pronoun sets that are right for them! All neopronouns and exipronouns are welcome.

We appreciate all pronouns and pronoun sets added to the wiki, other than pronoun sets that are offensive to the LGBTQIA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual/Aromantic/Agender, and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People Of Color) communities, which will be removed, unless the pronoun set is based on reclamation.

For browsers inexperienced with pronouns and neopronouns, welcome! Here is a brief rundown of what they are and how they're used in the English language:

When individuals refer to "pronouns", they are most often referring to the Nominative Personal Pronouns or 3rd Person Pronouns that someone may use, or more simply, a set of words to replace use of someone's name. These are most commonly exipronouns: he/him, she/her, they/them, and sometimes includes it/its and capital He/Him. Conversely, neopronouns are just that; "new" pronouns that have been created more recently.

While "more recently" is typically considered to be within the last 20 or so years (post-2000), the earliest set of neopronouns that still fit the current definition were thon/thons, created by Charles Crozat Converse in 1858, more than 150 years ago.

In the current era, neopronouns are split up into three sub-categories: non-themed, nounself pronouns, and emojiself pronouns. Only non-themed and nounself pronouns are used in speech; emojiself pronouns are used exclusively in text-based communication on digital platforms, though they may be indicative of an individual using similar nounself pronouns.

Neopronouns - and use of existing pronouns like singular they and it pronouns - can often be confusing and difficult to navigate, particularly for neurodivergent (including dyslexic) and multilingual individuals. Nonetheless, there are plenty of resources available to help everyone better understand the world of English personal (neo)pronouns and how to use them. A few key links are listed below:
