Hi there. One of my mother tongue friends recently cast a doubt over my use of "its". She said she didn't like the sentence: "I love the English language because it's flexible and I love its sound". She told me to change it this way: "I love the English language because it's flexible and I love the way it sounds." We had a little chat about the use of "its" and I seemed to understand that there may be some difference in the use of "its" as a pronoun between BrE and AmE. Is the first sentence really awkward? Is the second one definitely better?
