    I don’t know Greek, but after finding an error in the classification of French for this feature I started researching the other languages in this chapter I could find attestation for. David Holton, Peter Mackridge, and Irene Philippaki-Warburton’s \Greek: An Essential Grammar of the Modern Language\ lists third-person nominative plural as \aftoi\ and \aftes\ for masculine and feminine respectively; someone more familiar with Greek than I am should know if there actually is a gender distinction in the modern language.

  2. Ένας Μαλάκας Says:

    Yes, Greek definitely distinguishes gender in independent personal pronouns.

  3. Kostas Says:

    Greek has gender distinction for both singular and plural 3rd person pronouns, so it should be marked with the red marker.

    3rd person Singular:Αυτός/Αυτή/Αυτό (masculine/feminine/neuter)

    3rd person Plural :Αυτοί/Αυτές/Αυτά (masculine/feminine/neuter)
