Anglos when some one says
>I'm with a friend
Do you imagine the person saying that phrase next to an androgynous creature? or do you simultaneously imagine the person to be with both a female and a male until that point is cleared?
Everyone, when someone says
>I'm with my friends
Do you imagine the person saying that phrase next to two people? or do you simultaneously imagine the person to be with three people or more until that point is cleared?
I usually imagine 3 people or more, I also imagine it being a group with males and females. Unless they use the feminine version of "friends" or if the context suggests few people or male only
I'm not anglo but I lived 10 years of my youth in the USA so I feel like giving you a reply.
I usually imagine a male person, much like when people say "I'm gonna see a doctor" I imagine a male doctor. It's like male is the standard in my brain.
It's more like the gender doesn't come to mind for me. I don't picture anything. I'm not thinking, "might be a male, might be a female"...Genuinely it just means they are with a person that they are friends with, I don't really wonder what the gender is because at this point in the convo it's irrelevant.
If I said "Estoy con alguien", what would you think?
