Bipronominal is the act of going by and identifying with exactly two sets of pronouns. It is a subset of multipronominal. The most common example of bipronouns would likely be someone who uses she/her and they/them or someone who uses he/him and they/them pronouns, however bipronoun individuals can go by any two pronoun sets, including neopronouns.
Bipronoun experiences may include:
- Using two sets of pronouns at the same time. One might alternate between pronouns every other sentence or in the middle of a sentence.
- genderfluid individuals, they may feel like one gender one day, and a different gender the next, and they may change their pronouns to reflect that.
- Letting other individuals decide which pronouns to use. One may simply let other individuals choose which of one's two pronoun sets they want to use.
It is unknown when the term was coined, however it has been used amongst the community since 2019.
