Q: When I read an article today, I saw this sentence: "Describing what your child sees when she walks outside can help her continue to connect words to objects."
Plus, I sometimes hear some people use "she" and "her" to indicate a baby regardless of the gender.

* Is using "she" and "her" common in daily conversation and written language?
* How do YOU do? Use "she" and "her", "they", or the other way?
* How do YOU feel of this way? Natural or kind of reserved?
* About until how old can we use this pronoun to kid regardless of their gender.
* Isn't it regarded as against PC? (Maybe I'm misunderstanding the sense of PC, though.)

Share your ideas, please.
Even only the question you can answer must be helpful for me.
A: That's actually (I think) a really interesting question. So first of, it's not really common in spoken language you might say 'them' e.g. "Describing what your child sees when they walk outside can help them continue to connect words to objects" it's not really grammatical but people will get it. The use of female pronouns 'she/her' isn't limited to children you can use it to refer to the general 'person'. Now as to wether it's PC is really interesting it sort of is PC, it's kind of a new thing. Because in old books the 'general person' is almost always referred to as a male, e.g. in the Bible "whoever abides in love abides in God, and God in *him*". But take more modern books like 'Home Deus' it says "If you would use a time machine to send a modern scientist back to ancient Egypt, *she* would not be able..." and I was reading something the other day that used 'he' instead of 'she' in this way and it felt a little unprogressive.

Sorry that was a lot to unpack there, do you have any clarifying questions?
Q: I saw an article and its title was “Lee Youn-taek grilled over assault allegations. “ In this sentence, I don’t know what ‘grill over’ means. Is it kind of Idioms?
A: It is an idiom. To be "grilled" is to be interrogated/questioned intensely. So, Lee Youn-taek was interrogated over (over=regarding) assault allegations.

Picture meat on the grill. You are applying literal heat. With the idiom, you are likening people to meat on a grill.
Q: I'm not sure how to use English articles properly.

1. What do you think about new 4K televisions?
2. What do you think about the new 4K televisions?

Is there any difference in the meaning between the above two sentences?
If any, could you please explain it to me? Thank you.
A: There is a difference between the two sentences.
“What do you think about new 4K televisions?” can refer to any kind of 4K television.
“What do you think about the new 4K televisions?” Shows that you are talking about a specific type of 4K television.
“The” is used to point out something specific. For example, the sentence “I was reading book” can mean that you are reading any book. But, if you say “I was reading the book” then it shows that you are reading a specific book, not just any book.
Q: 🎈166
To mention in general, do you put an article before these nouns (in the brackets) ?

This expression is usually said:
from ( )child to ( ) mum,
and,
between ( )husband and ( )wife, or, people in a relationship.
A: おはよう!from frosty Essex. 🌨❄️☃️

Some examples:

'From child to mother'

"The infection can pass from child to mother." From any child to any mother... this sounds like the concept (概念), an example child and an example mother.

'From a child to a mother'

This is the same but less abstract. There might be actual people.

'From the child to the mother'

We would use this if we had mentioned a child and a mother but also, it can mean the same as the first one.

An elephant is in danger (there is an elephant, we don't know which one)
The elephant is in danger (the elephant we know is in danger, or like ...)
The African Elephant is in danger (all the African elephants)
