The English language unfortunately lacks a simple singular pronoun which does not specify gender, That's why i would to ask the Experts here in this Forum about this debatable question " The possessive and objective pronoun of Angel ".

If i want to write a text as the following one :

" I dreamt about angels last night , They were more than 5 angels flying in the Sky tending towards me , one of them was so big with wings on his\her\its shoulders , when i saw and hear him\her\it calling me by my name .... i woke up immediatly scared "

Any pronoun should i choose?

Hi,

The English language unfortunately lacks a simple singular pronoun which does not specify gender, That's why i would to ask the Experts here in this Forum about this debatable question " The possessive and objective pronoun of Angel ".

If i want to write a text as the following one :

" I dreamt about angels last night , There were more than 5 angels flying in the Sky tending towards me , one of them was so big with wings on his\her\its shoulders , when i saw and hear him\her\it calling me by my name .... i woke up immediatly scared "

Any pronoun should i choose? I would use its/it. Angels are not people. Are you even sure that angels have two different sexes?

Best wishes, Clive

He, She, and It are ALL third-person pronouns.

If the angel was male (if there are male and female angels), then use he.
If the angel was female, then use she.
If the angel had no gender, then use it.

The lack of the third-person, singular is hard when you know it was a person, but not which person, and therefore don't know which gender to use.

In this case, you SAW the person/entity/being/angel, so you should be able to determine the correct pronoun.

Well, what sex were the angels you saw? The Bible seems to use 'he' exclusively, according to a browse through my concordance.
Mr.Clive said : Are you even sure that angels have two different sexes?

Mister Micawber said : Well, what sex were the angels you saw?

what i want to know is what is the used pronoun with " Angel " , it's needless to say that Angels haven't two different sexes,

But if we used " it " as a pronoun with angel , we considered angels as a third-person ?

I think now you get me ....
