FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a synonym for she?

We don’t traditionally think of she as having synonyms, but there are some situations in which it can be reworded or replaced with another word or phrase.

she herself

Sometimes, the phrase she herself is used to emphasize that a person did something entirely by herself or that it was done by her as opposed to others. For example, saying She cast the deciding vote may be a neutral statement, but saying She herself cast the deciding vote indicates that there was some significance to the fact that it was she who did it.

her

Sometimes a sentence can be reworded to replace the subject she with the equivalent object her. For example, the question “When do you expect she will arrive?” could be reworded as “When do you expect her to arrive?” In this case, it’s a more natural-sounding question, but this kind of rewording can be done for a number of reasons.

Her is also commonly used after linking verbs (like is and was) in sentences like It was her that I saw on the train or It is her in that picture.
