The RAE is an ancient institution whose prestige has been acquired with effort and, at times, with misunderstandings on the part of speakers who are either ideologized or committed to a revolutionary spirit of adapting the language to the times, without realizing that it cannot be subjected to the vicissitudes of a synchrony that does not know well what is going to take root in our cultural heritage and what is going to be a passing fashion.

The language of a people belongs to its speakers, and they have very different diatopies, so the evolution of the language, of any language, does not go well with haste or with contamination of various kinds. Thus, for example, there was talk that the RAE was analyzing the incorporation of the word elle as an expression of the third person personal pronoun for those who «do not feel identified with the masculine and feminine genders» (La Nación, October 27, 2020). This arises from a debate that is more political than scientific, and we must wait for the positions to be reformulated, paying more attention to what the genius of language brings us and to the communicative efficiency that, at the end of the day, marks the rules of any human language.
