He said She said

Did you know in Tagalog, the language spoken by many people from the Philippines, there is no equivalent word for He or She?  If you ever notice a Filipino mixing up and referring to a male as "Her", or female as "Him", that's why. 

kanyaher, his, its, hers
siyahe, she, him, her, it, herself
kaniyaher, his, hers
nyaher, his, its

is what google translate says about the matter.

Now you know!
