English breaks computer logic, once again…


English breaks computer logic, once again…  …or is it the other way around?

Just had to post and comment how funny the English language is… again.

I wrote a little macro/widget for displaying gender pronouns dynamically.   Simple stuff… sorta.

<<he>> – he, she

<<him>> – him, her

<<his>> – his, hers

Easy stuff, correct?

“<<he>> looks young for <<his>> age.”  — Reasonable.  All’s well.  …as long as it’s a male.

For a female, I got:  “she looks young for hers age.”  Bah!

English language!

I’m a native speaker and it still catches me off-guard, on occasion.  *shrug*

…just sharing a thought I found humorous…

Back to the coding for me.
