Roots

The pronoun THEM was theim in Old Norse.   אותם OWTHahM is likewise the 3rd person objective pronoun. Genesis1:27 makes clear that Man and Woman were created equal: "male and female created He them . "  הם HaiM and הן HaiN are the masculine and feminine forms of  “they.”


Branches

One form of THEM was hem in Middle English, recalling HaiM (they - 3rd person subjective pronoun). While the Indo-European “root” of THEM is to (demonstrative pronoun), the Biblical Aramaic pronoun for "this" and "that" is DaiN. (THEM is pronounced "dem" in Brooklyn; many "th" words derive form "d" terms.)  Ano in Japanese means those.

See THOU.  You  (plural) in Maya (Amerind) is  toon  <  S-N  אתן    ATeN (f.), אתם  ATeM (m.)  of you plural in Edenic. See THOU.
