Subject: ey

Object: em

Possessive adjective: eir

Possessive pronoun: eirs

Reflexive: emself

Stephen likes to knit. Ey goes to many yarn shops, where ey buys emself much yarn. In the fall, you can find em watching hours upon hours of figure skating. Eir favorite skater is Shoma Uno; there is no wrong favorite, but this one is eirs.
