Lawmakers in France have revolted against a "non-binary pronoun" that was added to the French language in he latest edition of the Le Robert online dictionary.

Jean-Michel Blanquer, the Minister of Education, tweeted:

"Inclusive writing is not the future of the French language."

"Hence, even though our students are consolidating their fundamental knowledge, they cannot have this as a reference."

The Le Robert dictionary added the "iel" which is a combination of the masculine "il" and the feminine "elle" in French.

According to the dictionary, it is a "personal subject pronoun of the third person singular and plural, used to refer to a person regardless of gender."

French politician Francois Jolivet blasted the pronouns in a letter to the French Academy.

"The solitary campaign of Petit Robert is a manifest ideological intrusion which undermines our common language," wrote Jolivet.

"This kind of initiative tarnishes our language and divides users rather than uniting them."

Jolivet said such language was a precursor of "woke ideology" and destroyed the values of the French people.

The of the dictionary, Charles Bimbenet, responded to the backlash claiming the reactions to the non-binary pronoun were positive.

"Le Robert's mission is to observe the evolution of a French language in movement, diverse, and to report on it," read a statement from Bimbenet.

"Defining the words that speak of the world is to help understand it better."

In 2017, the French Academy voted unanimously to call inclusive language an "aberration that poses a mortal threat to the French language and which the nation will need to account for to future generations."
