Non-persons[edit]

ALL of the examples have "them" refer to humans. I am not a native speaker, but I think "them" can also refer to things. So it would be good to have more representative examples. Nicolas1981 07:51, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

You’re right, them can also refer to animals or things: I have thousands of freckles, but I have not actually counted them. —Stephen (Talk) 03:06, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Since this 2004 edit, the translation section for this inflected form has contained two brief essays on French and Italian grammar that might belong in the entries for those terms or perhaps in Wikigrammar. It just might be getting near time to clean this up. DCDuring TALK 13:56, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Just kill 'em with extreme prejudice. Large translation tables are hard enough to read without this sort of information. It's relevant but should be in the French and Italian entries, not here. Mglovesfun (talk) 21:54, 4 August 2013 (UTC)
