One thing to noteEdit

Many people have the habit of talking about themselves in third person, and this should be noted in here as improper third person talk. 02:59, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: noun "The pronouns he, she, it, they and one." Huh? Perhaps this should be at RFC or just deleted directly. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:00, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, move to RFC. Whoever added that def may have been bothered by the verb-centricity of our other defs — "he refers to himself in the third person" is not about the choice of verb — but the result is not useful. —RuakhTALK 15:08, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
I've noticed that with other definitions like third-person singular where of course pronouns as well as verbs (and probably more than that) can have third-person singular forms. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:15, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Detagged. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:28, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
