Pronoun for corpse or dead body
« on: November 11, 2016, 07:18:31 am »
I'm currently playing an adventure game where dead bodies are involved. I was wondering why they used pronouns like them, they, and their when talking about a corpse (even if its a single corpse)?

Corpse Party?

Anyway, it's probably because it is genre neutral.
