Disambiguation: Not to be confused with a grammarian.

Grammatical person (/grəmætɪkəl pɜ:sən/; plural grammatical persons rather than *"grammatical people") is the grammatical distinction between deictic references to participant(s) in an event; in English the distinction is between the speaker (first person), the addressee (second person), and others (third person)[1]
