Directions:Correcting the sentences given if needed under the rule of: Inclusive Language-Making language nonracist and nonagist.#1-5

(1)She is a very capable black woman
(2)His grandmother really enjoys spending the afternoon at the center for senior citizens.
(3)It's hard to believe that a woman her age could accomplishso much.
(4)One of the high points of our triop was seeing the Canadian Eskimos in their traditional garb.

(1)She is a very capable black woman

She is a very capable person. This would eliminate both racist and sexist aspects. The feminine pronoun needs to be retained to make sure it refers to the appropriate noun.

(2) His grandmother really enjoys spending the afternoon at the center for senior citizens.

His grandmother really enjoys the activities at the center she attends. You might want to use the pronoun, "she," to avoid any reference to age, but it might not make the referent clear.

(3)It's hard to believe that a woman her age could accomplishso much.

It's hard to believe that she has accomplished so much.

(4) One of the high points of our trip was seeing the Canadian Eskimos in their traditional garb.

I wouldn't change this at all. The group needs to be mentioned to give the reader some idea of what type of clothing is being discussed.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
