Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

mid-12c., probably evolving from Old English seo, sio (accusative sie), fem. of demonstrative pronoun (masc. se) "the," from PIE root *so- "this, that" (see the). The Old English word for "she" was heo, hio, however by 13c. the pronunciation of this had converged by phonetic evolution with he "he," which apparently led to the fem. demonstrative pronoun being used in place of the pronoun (compare similar development in Dutch zij, German sie, Greek he, etc.). The original h- survives in her. A relic of the Old English pronoun is in Manchester-area dialectal oo "she." As a noun meaning "a female," she is attested from 1530s.


n. A female. pron. 1 (context personal English) A female person or animal. 2 (context personal sometimes affectionate English) A ship. 3 (context personal affectionate English) Another machine (besides a ship), such as a car. 4 (context personal nonstandard English) he/she (qualifier: used in a work, along with or in place of ''he'', as an indefinite pronoun).

She (Green Day song)

"She" is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day. It is the eighth track on their third album, Dookie and was released as the fifth and final single. The song was written by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong about a former girlfriend who showed him a feminist poem with an identical title. In return, Armstrong wrote the lyrics of "She" and showed them to her. She later dumped him and moved to Ecuador, prompting Armstrong to put "She" on the album. The same ex-girlfriend is the topic of the songs "Sassafras Roots", "Chump", and " Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)". It is one of the few Green Day singles that did not have a music video.

She (Charles Aznavour song)

"She" is a song written by Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer and released by Aznavour as a single in 1974. The song was written as a theme tune for the British TV series Seven Faces of Woman.

The song was also recorded in French, German, Italian and Spanish under the titles "Tous les visages de l'amour" (English: All the Faces of Love), "Sie" (English: She) "Lei" (English: She) and "Es" (English: [She] is), respectively.

The song peaked at number 1 on the UK Singles Chart, stayed there for four weeks, and it was certified silver for shipments exceeding 250,000 units. It also reached number 1 in the Irish Charts, spending one week at the top. The song was recorded by Aznavour in several different languages aside from English, namely French and Italian, as well as Spanish and German. The song was less popular outside of the UK (where Seven Faces of Woman did not air); in France, the song narrowly missed the top 40, and in the United States, it failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 and charted on the lower end of the easy listening charts.

Elvis Costello recorded a cover version of the song in 1999. This version, produced by Trevor Jones, was featured over the closing credits of the film Notting Hill and charted throughout Europe.

After the showdown at a health spa where Jheira has set up a sanctuary for her fellow refugees, Angel confronts the arrogant princess about her cavalier disregard for the safety of humans, specifically Cordelia and Wesley. Acknowledging each other as self-appointed champions of the helpless, the two demons achieve mutual understanding before parting ways.

She (1935 film)

She is a 1935 American film produced by Merian C. Cooper. Based on H. Rider Haggard's novel of the same name, the screenplay combines elements from all the books in the series: She, She and Allan, ''[[Ayesha (novel)|Ayesha: The Return of She]] and Wisdom's Daughter. The film reached a new generation of moviegoers with a 1949 re-release.

The ancient civilization of Kor is depicted in an Art Deco style with imaginative special effects. The setting is Arctic Siberia, rather than in Africa, as in the first book. The third book is set in the Himalayas. With music by Max Steiner, the film stars Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scott and Nigel Bruce.

It was hoped that She would follow Cooper's previous success, King Kong. Cooper had originally intended to shoot the film in color, but budget cuts by RKO forced him to shoot the film in black and white at the last minute. However, the black and white film had disappointing results at the box office. It initially lost $180,000, although it later had a successful re-release. The film is listed in Golden Raspberry Award founder John Wilson's book The Official Razzie Movie Guide as one of the The 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made.

In 2006, Legend Films and Ray Harryhausen colorized the film as a tribute to Cooper. The colorized trailer for She premiered at the 2006 Comic-Con.

She was considered a lost film for many years until an original print, stored in silent film star Buster Keaton's garage, was turned over to film distributor Raymond Rohauer for preservation.

She originally had a running time of 102 minutes, but on its 1949 re-release, was edited down to 94 minutes, to better fit on a double bill with Cooper's The Last Days of Pompeii.

The 8 minutes of missing scenes, taken from a slightly lower quality 16mm print, were finally reinstated in 2007 by Kino Video.
