Definitions and meaning of ze

ze

Etymology 1

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /zə/

Article

ze

  1. Nonstandard spelling of the (usually signifying a foreign accent, often French or German).
    • 1992, Tristan Jones, Adrift, page 257:
      Then one French-American sous-chef, still in his white kitchen gear, climbed down from the cockpit, where he had been inspecting the cabin, peering inside, murmuring, "wonderfool–wonderfool, ze workmansheep!"

Etymology 2

Pronunciation

Pronoun

ze

  1. (rare, nonstandard) a Gender-neutral third-person singular subject pronoun, equivalent to singular they, and coordinate with gendered pronouns he and she.
Usage notes
  • The genderqueer community are the primary proponents of ze. One refers to a person with ze and hir or zir typically (a) when their gender is unknown, and one wishes to avoid assuming their gender, or (b) when they are neither male nor female in gender, making he and she (and also either/or terms like s/he or (s)he) inappropriate and potentially hurtful.
Synonyms
  • see Appendix:English third-person singular pronouns
