Definitions and meaning of she

she

Etymology

From Middle English sche, hye (she), from earlier scho, hyo, ȝho (she), a phonetic development of Old English hēo, hīo (she), from Proto-Germanic *hijō f (this, this one), from Proto-Indo-European *ḱe-, *ḱey- (this, here). Cognate with English dialectal hoo (she), Scots scho, shu (she), Saterland Frisian jo, ju (she), West Frisian hja (she), North Frisian (she), Danish hun (she), Swedish hon (she). More at he.

Despite the similarity in appearance, the Old English feminine demonstrative sēo (that) is probably not the source of Middle English forms in sch-. Rather, the sch- developed out of a change in stress upon hío resulting in hió, spelt ȝho (ȝh = , compare wh = hw, lh = hl, etc.), and the h was palatalised into the sh sound. Similar alteration can be seen in the name Shetland, from Old Norse Hjaltland; ȝho is the immediate parent form of Middle English scho and sche.

    • 1990, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow
      Optimal experience is thus something that we make happen. For a child, it could be placing with trembling fingers the last block on a tower she has built, higher than any she has built so far; for a swimmer, it could be trying to beat his own record; for a violinist, mastering an intricate musical passage.

Usage notes

  • Since at least the 1920s and 30s, some gay or queer men refer to other gay or queer men and/or themselves with she/her pronouns, as well as with other feminine terms such as Miss and girl, to signal their sexuality rather than their gender identity; this has sometimes been termed "the gay she":
