FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is another word for hers?

We don’t traditionally think of hers as having synonyms, but there are several situations in which it can replace—or be replaced with—another term.

her

Sometimes you can reword what you’re saying to use her instead of hers. For example, instead of saying This seat is hers, you could say This is her seat. 

her own 

The phrase her own is sometimes used as another way of saying hers. For example, instead of saying After tasks are assigned, Kate should focus only on hers, you could say After tasks are assigned, Kate should focus only on her own.

theirs

Instead of saying things like This house is his and hers, we usually use the plural form theirs, as in This house is theirs. Sometimes, though, it makes more sense to separate who owns what by using separate possessive words. For example, instead of saying These vehicles are theirs, you could say This car is his and this truck is hers. 

They has a long history of being used to refer to an unspecified individual or to a person whose gender and other personal details are unknown or irrelevant, and theirs can also be used as a singular in this way, as in I’m not sure who that is, but I think this car is theirs. Sentences like this sometimes use constructions like his or hers, but the use of theirs has become very common in such instances, with many people preferring theirs as less awkward and more inclusive.
