A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should, in the next day or two, make its way via the magic of FTP mirroring to a site near you. Thanks for the upload, Jim Hefferon ftpmaint at tug.ctan.org ================================================================= The following information was provided by our fellow contributor. Name of contribution: E-Em-Eir package Author's name: Mogens Lemvig Hansen Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/eemeir Summary description: Natural commands to type in place of gender specific words. License type: lppl Announcement text given by the contribution's author: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The eemeir package facilitates writing documents that must be produced in both a male and a female form by providing natural commands to type in place of gender specific words. The user can extend the list of such commands as the need arises. - - ----------------------------------------------------------------------

eemeir – Adjust the gender of words in a document

Defines macros for third-person singular pronouns (\E, \Em, \Eir, \Eirs), which expand differently according to a masculine/feminine switch. (If the switch is ‘masculine’, they would expand to ‘he’, ‘him’, ‘his’ and ‘his’; if ‘feminine’, they would expand to ‘she’, ‘her’, ‘her’ and ‘hers’. Apart from the pronouns, one can define ‘word pairs’, such as mother/father, daughter/son, and so on.

Gender may be defined once per document, as an environment, or may be flipped on the fly.
