comment Is there a correct gender-neutral, singular pronoun (“his” versus “her” versus “their”)?

comment What is the technical name for quotes?
@Anna, it is about what name to use when referring to the symbol which identifies a string literal in computer code. Usually, that symbol is either a double quote or a single quote.
