El anciano murió en la habitación de ellos.

English Sentence

The old person died in their room.

I think the Spanish translation misses that
the English sentence is gender-neutral, using singular their.

“La persona anciana murió en su habitación.” :thinking:

Not sure what you mean. Maybe it got fixed?

I think the English original sentence is another way to write “The old person died in his or her room.”

I understand.

Could this also mean that the room belongs to other people and not the old man?
In the Spanish sentence the room doesn’t belong to the old man :sweat_smile: sorry abuelito :melting_face:

It’s possible of course, but I find it strange to say “their” without specifying who.
