    This is she or This is her.

    When you call someone and ask to that particular person and he or she answers, the correct response is. "This is he or she." Just making sure I am right.

    Re: This is she or This is her.

    Yes, that is the correct response. I would prefer that even though some would use 'This is her/him.'

    Re: This is she or This is her.

    I do say "This is she" but I'm told I'm a dinosaur. I suppose I can avoid the conflict of being ungrammatical with being "uncool" by saying "This is Barb." The other thing you sometimes hear is "Speaking."
