However, I disagree with the tag wiki description ctype.h proposed:
For questions about determining the point of view of a given construction, i.e. first-, second-, or third-person.
In my view, this is conflating point of view with grammatical person. These two concepts are closely related, but differ somewhat in the details:
- Point of view is chiefly concerned with narratives and works of fiction; it includes not only first-, second-, and third-person, but also descriptors such as omniscient, close, and alternating.
- Grammatical person is more general and does not include these descriptors.
Since we often talk about first-/second-/third-person from a grammatical perspective without talking about the point of view of a story, I think we should come up with another solution--perhaps two tags, or perhaps a different description in the tag wiki.
