Rejected petition Implement "ŵ" as a gender-neutral pronoun in the Welsh language
Introducing a new pronoun into the Welsh language, "ŵ", would allow people who identify as a third gender to be referred to in a way that reflects their identity.
Far a possessive, "Ei" still being used, but causing no mutation. For prepositions, the 3rd person ending could be used, but with "w", rather than "o" or "i". For example: "Arnw".
For gendered professions, such as "Athro", "y" could be added to the end, forming "Athry", "Adeilady", and "Meddygy".
