when my teacher said "Give her her pen" was correct yet "Give him him pen" was incorrect

"Kembalikan pulpennya" makes more sense. Let's make Bahasa Indonesia as international language

[@372021,DeecemberGirl] It does hahahaha

Let's do it!
It is funny that the possessive of the pronoun “her” is also “her” while the possessive form of the pronoun “him” is [b]“his”[/b].
On the other hand, in English only [b]people[/b] require gender pronouns whereas in other languages every item is “he” or “she”.

English has rules that are easy to master, and exceptions in an infinite variety.

English can be weird. It can be understood through tough thorough thought, though.

Give him him pen sounds weird though
Blame the Anglo saxons. They all got together, had a party and then created English.
