his    : [h'ɪz] [hɪz]
His \His\ (h[i^]z), pron. [AS. his of him, his, gen. masc. &
neut. of h[=e], neut. hit. See {He}.]
1. Belonging or pertaining to him; -- used as a pronominal
adjective or adjective pronoun; as, tell John his papers
are ready; formerly used also for its, but this use is now
obsolete.
[1913 Webster]

No comfortable star did lend his light. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

Who can impress the forest, bid the tree
Unfix his earth-bound root? --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Also formerly used in connection with a noun simply as
a sign of the possessive. "The king his son." --Shak.
"By young Telemachus his blooming years." --Pope. This
his is probably a corruption of the old possessive
ending -is or -es, which, being written as a separate
word, was at length confounded with the pronoun his.
[1913 Webster]

2. The possessive of he; as, the book is his. "The sea is
his, and he made it." --Ps. xcv. 5.
[1913 Webster]


He \He\ (h[=e]), pron. [nom. {He}; poss. {His} (h[i^]z); obj.
{Him} (h[i^]m); pl. nom. {They} ([th][=a]); poss. {Their} or
{Theirs} ([th][^a]rz or [th][=a]rz); obj. {Them}
([th][e^]m).] [AS. h[=e], masc., he['o], fem., hit, neut.;
pl. h[imac], or hie, hig; akin to OFries. hi, D. hij, OS. he,
hi, G. heute to-day, Goth. himma, dat. masc., this, hina,
accus. masc., and hita, accus. neut., and prob. to L. his
this. [root]183. Cf. {It}.]
1. The man or male being (or object personified to which the
masculine gender is assigned), previously designated; a
pronoun of the masculine gender, usually referring to a
specified subject already indicated.
[1913 Webster]

Thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall
rule over thee. --Gen. iii.
16.
[1913 Webster]

Thou shalt fear the Lord thy God; him shalt thou
serve. --Deut. x. 20.
[1913 Webster]

2. Any one; the man or person; -- used indefinitely, and
usually followed by a relative pronoun.
[1913 Webster]

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise. --Prov.
xiii. 20.
[1913 Webster]

3. Man; a male; any male person; -- in this sense used
substantively. --Chaucer.
[1913 Webster]

I stand to answer thee,
Or any he, the proudest of thy sort. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

Note: When a collective noun or a class is referred to, he is
of common gender. In early English, he referred to a
feminine or neuter noun, or to one in the plural, as
well as to noun in the masculine singular. In
composition, he denotes a male animal; as, a he-goat.
[1913 Webster]
